Only files directly owned by the kernel will get removed when the kernel 
rpm is removed from your machine; which, as a policy holds true for any 
rpm. This is one of the many reasons why packagers are encouraged to 
list-and-own specific components and not complete directory tree's when 
they setup the spec files.
