Description of problem:
/sbin/installkernel is a shell script that is user customized to allow the 
system owner to determine what happens to an installed kernel when a make 
install is done. Please treat it like a config file so that a new version 
gets installed as an rpmsave if the file is changed by the system owner.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try
