Well, if the user wants to ignore kernel, and he's selected udev, and
udev requires a new kernel, then I think that the transaction should
still proceed, only doing a Message() that additional deps are dragged
The only other way is to fail the transaction if it cannot be resolved
with the current selection.
BIG NOTE: We can't pass the backends a "list of things to ignore". It's
just not going to work.
