For others: there was also bug about this:
I branched the kernel-default package under
kernel:stable, modified the

build and rebooted.
My problem is that I also need to generate a corresponding kernel-devel
package to get the kernel headers so that external modules can be built.
I do not see the means of getting this package.

linkpac kernel-default from that. By "osc linkpac <your-prj>
kernel-source <your-prj> kernel-default".
That will give you both kernel-source (producing kernel-devel (and
kernel-macros)) and kernel-default (producing kernel-default +
