MYKERNEL is just an example of a renamed/modified GENERIC kernel. That
wants to say that if you want to make some modifications to the generic
kernel, don't work on the provided generic configuration file, but on
yours: name it MYKERNEL, the hostname of your host or whatever you want
since it differs from GENERIC.
