[PATCH] Move kernels to "Section: kernel"

Per https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/499557, kernels should be in
"Section: kernel" these days.  We'll override this in the archive, but
it would make life easier if the kernel packaging matched as well.

(It does no harm for this to be applied to earlier releases as well,
though it doesn't have to be, so whatever's easiest for you.)
