deblob-<kver> is shell, with occasional tiny pieces of sed here and

deblob-check is a monster of shell and large pieces of sed (before
2.6.33; now it has nicer pieces equivalent to the sed monster in awk,
python and perl), but the part that might need changing (unlikely, but
still...) is adding or removing to the collection of regular expression,
which shouldn't be particularly hard.
