re: CVS commit: src

   Log Message:
   Build and install modules into /kernel/modules. Each module gets a
   directory for properties, blobs, etc. It's not fixed in stone and
   can easily be changed if there are issues with the location/layout.

cool.  i've been waiting for his :-)

could it be not a new top-level dir?  i've used dirs called
"/kernel" before (i think that's what freebsd uses for a while
now, too?) and i'm generally upset when the OS starts using
more files/subdirs in / on me, and i've been using the previous
one before.  /lib/modules works for me, but i'm not really
attached to it.

i think we also need some version number in here.  kernel number
changes matches when the kernel ABI has changed so, it seems
a valid choice to make.  it means having a lot more to clean
up if you use modules but i don't know of any other way that
is actually safe.
