[CentOS] kmod-xfs and weak-updates

I installed kmod-xfs-0.4-2 back with kernel-2.6.18-92.1.13. I have  
updated kernels but there have been no new kmod-xfs. It still works  
because of weak-updates (I guess). Currently:

# find /lib/modules -name xfs.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.13.el5/extra/xfs/xfs.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.13.el5/weak-updates/xfs/xfs.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.17.el5/weak-updates/xfs/xfs.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.18.el5/weak-updates/xfs/xfs.ko


My question is: kernel 2.6.18-92.1.13 is now the oldest one present  
on my system and will be removed next update. Do I need to worry  
about that? Will it take the remaining kmod-xfs with it?
