Default Change to kernel-2.eclass for bug #233266

Portage devs,

After querying some folks in #gentoo-portage concerning bug #233266[1], it was
suggested to me to add the entire /usr/src to PRELINK_PATH_MASK.

To sum up the bug, when emerging tuxonice-sources with prelink installed,
every file was checked which isn't necessary since nothing in there gets
compiled during the install.

After speaking to dsd, we were thinking of adding an env.d file from within
the postinst_sources function in the kernel-2.eclass if the file does not
already exist. This env.d file will add /usr/src to PRELINK_PATH_MASK.

The thinking here is that the file would not be owned by any package so we
would not need one per kernel source package and it would not be removed when
unmerging a kernel package.

Thoughts?

Mike,

This would be great. I believe you're suggesting to include /usr/src within
the 60prelink file. If my comprehension is correct, please let me know if
you want me to submit a bug or anything else I can do to make this happen..
