Why is it named kernel26? Also i was checking out the PKGBUILD. Do i
have to compile and install the kernel headers and kernel docs? Also the
pkgname is kernel26-mainline. But the the line 69 is
package_kernel26() { but shouldn't it be renamed
package_kernel26-mainline() { ?
I don't want to mess up my existing kernel by installing it. I want to
install it as package named kernel26-mainline.

Also is there anyway to check what files a package will add or remove
from my system when I install it without actually installing it?
