Would it be alright for kernel packages to provide for others that depend on
in-kernel features/functionalities, say, those from patches? Right now
kernel26 has the linux-phc patch, and the following is a GUI tool to do what
can be done, well, graphically:

As you can see, it could either skip the kernel26 dependency and tell the
user about the patch in install script - or - include the dependency like
the above case and expect the user to adjust PKGBUILD for other kernels with
the same patch.
