# If we left the comma down below when adding KERNEL_PKG to addpkg, the fact that KERNEL_PKG is undefined
# if DISTRO is debian would result in two commas in a row (,,), which is interpreted by apt-get as the
# package with the name empty string (""). This triggers a bug with apt versions < 1.0.3. So by adding the
# comma to the end of KERNEL_PKG, we are including that comma if the distro is ubuntu (and therefore we do
# have a kernel package that needs to be installed). If KERNEL_PKG is not set (i.e. we have Debian as the
# distro), then we don't add that extra comma and therefore, we don't end up with two commas in a row.
