Excellent!  That seems to do exactly what I wanted.

Did you already know about those hooks or did you just know how to
find them, because I guess I failed to find them.

After 20 years of using Emacs, I just knew about them.


But all conventional modes have a hook, so dired-mode-hook should have
been obvious.  And then rather than trying to predict what kind of files
might be in your kernel directory structure (i.e. what modes might be
used and thus hooks might need to be added to), the standard hook to use
is find-file-hooks (and find-file-not-found-hooks for new files).
