I can boot my ext4 / filesystem with a clean dmesg :)

I don't care if I will maintain it in core or extra with additional
signoff. Maybe our ISO makers should say if they have enough space for
this kernel for both arches in core or if they would like to put it
manually as bonus to the disc and how the selection will work
(remember the scsi/ide years?).

To me core would be the more logical place stating it's of the same
quality and importance.
