Little things that matter in language design
cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.6-linus
Why would I want more complexity to test new kernels?
What's initramfs do now?

make install modules_install
which I think beats yours by one line. :)
(Yet again: initramfses *do not* need to be installed in separate files -- distros just do that because it makes it easier to ship prepackaged kernels. If you link them into the kernel image, they don't make it harder to test kernels at all: the installed kernel is exactly one file, just as before. A bloody good thing too given the amount of bisection I seem to have been doing recently...)
