 * The kernel version has been converted from a string to a four-byte
 * quantity that is divided into two parts.
 *
 * Part 1: The three most significant bytes represent the kernel's
 * numeric version, x.y.z. These fields denote:
 *       x -- major release
 *       y -- minor release
 *       z -- patchlevel release
 * Each of these elements must therefore be in the range 0 to 255, inclusive.
 *
 * Part 2: The least significant byte is reserved for future use.
