NOUPSTREAM: kbuild: deb-pkg: Meta-package support
Kernel packages are "special" because they are designed to be parallel installed and therefore have a revision number in the package name. That means we need to create a meta-package that depends on the latest numbered version of the kernel. Without this apt will not automatically keep up to date with the latest kernel.
