When you only require foo as opposed to foo and foo-kmdl-`uname -r`
you are letting the system guess a kernel for you. It may pick
whatever kernel there is. smart usually picks a kernel you already
have installed as it tries to minimize package installations, so it
sometimes does the right thing, but the correct procedure is to
explicitely ask for the kmdl for your kernel.
But for 7676 (see another thread) there are issues building on 2.6.16,
so there are some kernels it doesn't build for.
