[maemo-users] Update 3 HORROR - Maemo wont boot after Power Kernel

flashing the firmware image completely overwrites everything
from the kernel-power package. just reflashing the kernel
would have been sufficient if it was a kernel problem:
flasher-3.5 -f --flash-only=kernel -R -F <firmware-image>
but it seems that something else is the cause (broken home?).

Modern Linux system don't need nor use a /lib/modules/current link.
kernel-power fixes the broken /sbin/preinit so that it also uses
"uname -r" to look up the correct modules.
Therefore every kernel that is reflashed will find its own modules.
