Well, on my box:

  [~]#[email protected]*> rpm -qf /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4smp
  kernel-smp-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4

So I'd say the SMP kernel is a separate package. What does:

  rpm -q kernel
  rpm -q kernel-smp

say?

Oh, while on the x86_64 subject I discovered that some RHEL boxes I look
after have both i386 and x86_64 packages installed, and that "rpm -qa"
is singularly annoying in that case because its default behaviour is
not to include the architecture. So eg "rpm -qa | grep foo" will often
list the same name twice and "rpm -ev foo" will refuse to work because
it matches multiple packages.

So I now have an "rpmq" script:

  http://www.cskk.ezoshosting.com/cs//css/bin/rpmq

that sets up the report format string to include the architecture,
which still gives you package names you can hand to "rpm -e". I found
this handy when pruning down an install for a production machine.
