[arch-general] new packaging of the kernel/mkinitcpio/kmod

Can someone explain in better detail the changes in
* kmod 26-3
* mkinitcpio 27-1
* linux
around packaging and pacman hooks?

I can see there's some reorganization of the hooks and scripts, and
the kernel package no longer
installing directly to /boot (which is a welcome change, the kernel is
now only in /usr/lib/modules/5.3.8-arch1-1/vmlinuz)
but it's not easy for me to reverse-understand what the bash scripts do exactly.

I'm asking because I also use pacman hooks on the kernel and some
other files in order to create my combined kernel+initramfs+cmdline
UEFI executable signed for secure-boot, and it seems I'll have to
adopt to a newer setup.
