Modular Kernel Packaging

The kernel package is now a meta package that pulls in kernel-core and kernel-modules. The kernel-core package is smaller than a full package and is well-suited for virtualized environments. By optionally uninstalling kernel-modules, cloud image size can be reduced.

Initramfs Changes
Please note, that a new initramfs is only automatically generated by the kernel-core package but not the kernel-modules package. If you only installed kernel-core at first and install kernel-modules at a later point in time, you need to create a new initramfs manually using dracut, if any of the newly installed modules has become critical for your system's boot up.
