It seems to default to kernel* as I have clearly seen xen kernels
announced for removal. All the yum.conf files are the same on my machines.
I lied about what I wrote about the kernels that got kept. It's always 5
on the amchiens that have existed for some time. This fits with the
installonly_limit = 5 in all yum.conf files. On the one machine with the
problem it's 4 kernels, I think it hasn't reached more yet.
Anyway, it remains a mystery why grub.conf didn't get updated here. I will
check again with next kernel ...
