Bug Description

I noticed this because I found that the -generic kernel was in the .tar.gz files (it should not be), but the situation is worse.

Current oneiric and precise builds have 'linux-generic' installed, which then makes its way into the tarball.

This means that the images are greatly larger than they should be, and the .tar.gz files are harder to deal with.
