IIRC, Fedora's pre-upgrade was failing because "/boot"'s default size
is/was 200MB and the workaround was to clear out some space by keeping
just one kernel and removing the "hidden space" allocated to root on

We have to hope that this'll be taken into account and "/boot"'s
default set larger if pre-upgrade's coming to CentOS 6. (Would
pre-upgrade be to go from CentOS 6 to CentOS 7?!)
