I agree.

I have to run a script that uninstalls kmod-* modules and reinstalls them to 
make kernel updates actually work. At least for kmod-drbd82  and kmod-xfs, 
the only ones I'm using.

The old way, which I understand required the modules to be specially built 
for each kernel, worked better.

Not complaining, since it's free, but if anyone thinks this is actually 
working right, I just have to say it isn't.
