One word of warning before this gets out of hand and
enters the dark path of abuse like kernel-default-base subpackage before
it: the -kvmsmall flavor was *not* designed for "occasional home user"
or, actually, any user. Its sole purpose is to serve as a flavor which
builds as quickly as possible so that developers could quickly test
their core fixes in a VM (or bisect regressions). Originally, we didn't
even plan to build and publish it in BuildService.
This should probably be somewhere in the package %description.
Oh! It is in the description. Which -- of course -- I did not read
I probably just judged from the name that it might be suitable for KVM
use. I thought of it as "something like kernel-xen or kernel-ec2, but
In other words, the -kvmsmall flavor is not intended
for practical use
and therefore "it would make it more useful for practical use" is not
a valid justification for adding more stuff to it.
And actually, probably due to compressed modules(?), the size difference
(168MB vs 92MB) in Factory is much less significant than it is in Leap
15.1 (where -default is 311MB vs -kvmsmall 117MB), so it is probably not
as useful (size-wise) as I thought it would be.
