	You have updated to 9.1-RELEASE-p2 - but since there have been no
kernel changes since 9.1-RELEASE the kernel version message hasn't changed.
This could very reasonably be regarded as bug in the update/version
reporting process but I wouldn't hold my breath for a fix, as things stand
the version reported only changes when the kernel is updated, or if you
recompile it after the update.
