I'm mimicking RPM's convention for expressing shared library
dependencies in terms of the library names rather than the packages in
which they reside. Obviously that doesn't translate literally to the
kernel, but I thought it would be recognizable to people familiar with
RPM deps on shared libraries.
I did look around on the web to see if any distro had a standard way of
expressing dependencies on kernel modules from userspace packages but
came up empty handed. If you find something that you think we should use
instead, I'd be happy to change it.
