Am I supposed to install a kernel-dummy package

Using kernel-dummy was AFAIK the way to sync versions across all kernel
packages. I'll have to let others explain just how that worked in detail
Yep, that's how it worked before the build service existed (and still
works on the old SUSE-internal build service). It defines the
kernel-dummy package, which only exists to provide a version and release
number - and then the other packages inherit it via some build system magic.
The problem is that the old build system didn't define any variables
that could be used to key off of, so the opensuse_bs variable ends up
being used as "not using the old build system" variable.
So yes, it's safe to do --define "opensuse_bs 1".
