Huh?  I mean kernel, *.ko -> /boot/kernel and kernel.debug (or 
kernel.sym once that's fixed) -> /var/crash/kernel/kernel.debug

I guess that duplicates a few megs but it keeps / from overflowing as 
before.  Typically /var or /usr is expected to have the available space, 
especially since /var/crash gets coredumps (if savecore is enabled) 
which are much bigger than debug kernels.
