A script to create a device tarball

I've written a developer tool that you can use to update a device 
tarball with a new kernel. I've used this to roll forward from the 15.04 
kernel (3.19) to a 4.0 kernel on the Beaglebone Black. You can find it 
here: git://kernel.ubuntu.com/rtg/snappy-tools.git

For example:


This script extracts the relevant bits from the original device tarball 
and the kernel deb package and creates a new device tarball 

I've not tried this on x86, but it ought to be arch independent.
