I don't know if this is a bug or a feature... Anyway, my guess is as
follows.  Those kernels with the size ~40MB are installed on the
system and the size represents the "installed size" which can be seen
with 'rpm -qi'.  On the other hand, the kernel that yum reported as
16MB is *not* on the system, so this is the size of the rpm file as
yum sees it as the "download size".
