Hmm, next time, when building these RC series, I would suggest to do the
same as we're doing with the final kernels: just name them 2.6.22-ARCH,
or if you insist, keep it 2.6.22rc-ARCH or something like that. Just
omit the version of the RC, pacman knows about it, and given the fact
that release candidates are in freeze period, there won't be big
internal changes that make modules incompatible with a next RC version.
