Coming back to this. The above dependency is only found in the
profiles/uclibc/*/2.4/packages files, where it is always part of the
following group:


The dependency on <sys-kernel/*-sources-2.5 should be enough to ensure
that no newer kernel sources are pulled in.

Apart from these profiles, nothing in the tree depends on
linux-sources-2.4 any more. So I'd say that we could drop versioning
of the virtual altogether.
