Hongxu Jia - Sept. 12, 2013, 9:25 a.m.
While installing a rpm to update kernel on a deployed target, it will update
the boot area and the boot menu with the kernel as the priority but allow
you to fall back to the original kernel as well.

- In pre-install script, it backs up original kernel to avoid confliction with
  new one.
- In post-install script, it updates the new kernel as the boot priority.

?This change just assumes that all boot systems are alike. Just applying 
this patch "as is" will probably break a lot of embedded systems that 
have totally different ways of upgrading the kernel. Best scenario is 
that they'll waste time and space running scripts that will have no effect.

It should be possible - and more important: default - to NOT include 
these scripts, and use them only on targets they apply to. 
kernel.bbclass is in my opinion not the correct location.

Otherwise, should I add my kernel postinstall script that writes the 
kernel into an MTD block on an embedded target to this class as well? 
And a NAND version? And SD?

Mike.

Yes, we should add a on-off to decide whether the method should be used 
or not,
and set off by default.

But I could not find a better location to do this, almost all of targets 
in oe-core may
need this, do you have any suggestions?

Thanks,

My intuition says, just create a "kernel-grub.bbclass". I don't see 
anything wrong with that yet.

On the other hand, it's more of a thing I'd expect in BSP or machine 
support layer.
