Not sure I understand this TBH.

They're separate repositories and I don't see why updating to newer
commits in one necessitates rebuilding the kernel at the same time.

The other package does not do anything substantial with merging the
together, it even installs them as a separate split package which
neither depends on, nor is depended on by, the actual linux-bcachefs-git

I'm fairly positive this is the wrong technical solution, they should be
separate packages.

That being said, this package should be named -git, since it builds from
git and there is no stable tagged release.
