Not really.  The file is called "Module.symvers" and those are multiple
"Module.symvers"s.  It's my naming convention for lists.  If we don't
want that then I can change it here.

Probably not a lot, but there are quite a few binary cache files (.bin)
generated by depmod and not by us--not sure whether we want to replicate
that complexity given the problems we had even with the initrd stuff.

I'm not sure whether those bin files are mandatory or optional to have.
