Description kes-kes 2012-04-30 07:20:11 UTC
if you build and trying to install kernel
make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_CONF
and occasionally server reboot occour. it is not start up =(

Allow installkernel to be the atomic action. To avoid lost connection to server if server reboot occour during install process.

Fix: 

for example install kernel to some directory and as last action do:
mv /boot/kernel /boot/kernel.old
mv /boot/kernel.new /boot/kernel
nextboot....
How-To-Repeat: when doing `make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_CONF` press reset button
