DKMS and old kernel modules

I'm wondering how the version of DKMS in rawhide deals with old
modules, when the kernel for which they were built is removed.

On F-7, with FreshRPMS' madwifi RPM (which uses DKMS), the old modules
are left behind, which means /lib/modules accumulates junk files over

Not sure what the best solution is. Trigger a cleanup process in the
DKMS initscript, which would operate if the kernel booted is not the
same as at the previous boot?

(will Bugzilla this if people think it's a good idea)
