The next upload will be an ABI bump to 2.6.30-10.11

Pursuant to the Karmic flavours Blueprint
I've implemented the flavour changes.

However, I have some questions about upgrading as well as CPU feature

1) Is the installer intelligent enough to detect the relevant CPU
features necessary to support PAE, and therefore install the correct
kernel version ? (Or at least complain that PAE is not supported).

2) Similarly for the upgrade manager, can it detect that the legacy
flavour should be installed instead of upgrading the existing generic
