Of course it's possible, although I wonder if it's the right
thing to do.

We do have customers who are doing things that don't use
the GPU, and may want other userspace updates.

This is especially true of kernel version 3.0.35 and for SOM
customers who may have patches for their specifics.

On the other hand, these customers are probably best served by
introducing their own recipes to contain both the kernel and their
updates, and if we don't intend to push updates to the older
kernels to the master branch, it probably is the right thing to do.

I'll send a separate patch shortly.
