Bruce Ashfield - July 24, 2014, 8:41 p.m.
In 3.16+ x86-64 kernel builds produce a file. If this file is
copied into the kernel source install multiple QA failures are triggered.
Specifically, this file triggers a debug package split that results in
files installed but not shipped, and invalid .debug file errors.

By ensuring that .so files are not copied, we avoid this incorrect split
with no impact on future build phases.
