 It might seem logical either way ($source-$flavour =>
 linux-linaro-image-omap, or linux-$source_suffix-$flavour =>
 linux-image-linaro-omap); the current examples in the archive all start
 with linux-image-, even when they come from different sources.  e.g.
 linux-meta-ec2 produces linux-headers-ec2, linux-image-ec2, linux-ec2;
 not linux-ec2-*.
