meta package for live USB/CD kernel and modules
Would be nice to have some way to upgrade kernels and modules on USB/CF live setups via apk-tools.
Since we don’t want apk tools to install the kernel and kernel modules during boot we cannot have apk to manage those files. We could have pre/post install scripts to create the need links to module loopback image on usb/cf. The pre/post upgrade scripts could fetch kernel from network and store them on the boot media.
Would be nice with ideas here.
The point is, apk upgrade -U should also upgrade the kernel/module loopback image but those should not be extracted to ram during boot.
