All 3 of the "packages" things can go in one big directory anyway- the
filenames are all unique since we put the architecture in the package
filenames. That would make the mounting process a lot less complex as
nothing would need to change between what kernel, processor, etc. you
are booting up on or want to install. Only the installer would care.
