If you "ls -l / | grep kernel", you'll notice that kernel and kernel.GENERIC
are identical in size. If you were to ever build a new kernel, your current
would be moved to kernel.old, so it's rather redundant to keep
kernel.GENERIC around.  I guess this is pretty trivial now that you've
tracked down the source of disk usage, but hey, 4MB is 4MB. =)
