A recipe for disaster (aka crash dump analysis)

Server dudes,

I'm about to start a wiki page that describes how to install the
necessary infrastructure for Jaunty crash dump acquisition and analysis.
One file that would make analysis much easier is to have available the
original uncompressed, unstripped vmlinux. I propose modifying the
Jaunty server package such that it is stored in /lib/modules/`uname -r`.
Any objections (or better ideas) ? IMHO servers are not typically disk
space limited, so the extra couple of MB doesn't seem like an undue
burden. Plus, I'm lazy and don't really want to produce yet another
package like linux-image-server-debug.
