Good point, I don't use the chapter8 kernel build process so I never ran 
into this one.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean here; you can specify any name 
for the source file that you want in general.ent. I will modify the 
profile to copy that file from &orig_packages_dir to &packages_dir when 
it copies the rest of the source files/patches; will that not be enough 
for what you are trying to do?
