Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kernel-package

I would like to make a suggestion/feature request and I hope this is the right place/package for it.
If the kernel gets updated some applications need to adjust themselves to the change. This includes Vmware and Virtualbox (not the OSE, but the sun variant with USB support) which need to compile new kernel modules.
It would be very helpful if there were a shell script in which the user could include commands that would be executed when the computer is started the first time with a new kernel.
Another script which would be invoked directly after a reboot could be helpful for other users.

I really would appreciate if someone looked into this. Thank you in
advance! :-)
