this ('$kinstalled') is the package that should be installed after the
upgrade has happened (for the non-upgraded case, we check for
pve-kernel-5.15). technically it means that yes, we should move
proxmox-mailgateway (which transitively depends on the renamed kernel
pacakges) and pmg-api at the same time through the repos.

that's why I noted that

in this patch (and the other similar ones for their respective meta

the only thing that breaks if we don't do that is this check here
complaining if
- pmg-api moved faster than the renamed kernel packages (or for some
  reason, a partial upgrade was done)
- *and* the running kernel version is an unexpected one (upgraded, but not
  yet rebooted, or some other non-standard setup)

it still rightfully complains, but with the wrong message..
