That is correct. Dep resolving to create an install tree is different
than dep solving at install time. This is because we have no idea what
the user will choose as far as packages at install time, so we need to
make sure all possible resolvers for deps are included. Once the user
goes to install, and they've say selected they want (or need)
kernel-PAE, then that particular kernel will satisfy all requirements
on kernel. But if instead they want or need kernel.i586, that will
take the place instead.
