I'm sorry I didn't explain myself well enough. When I say user I mean
a user who has installed kmods on their system. What I'm saying is
instead of looking for a complicated solution which is going to be
used by a relatively small section of the entire fedora user base,
maybe its worthwhile for the person using kmods to manage this on
their own end by changing that setting. Then when s/he is confident
that they have the needed kmods, then can manually change the default
kernel.
