That's not a scheme's purpose, that's more a depsolver's mechanics. In
this point both old and new schemes are the same.

Concerning the plugins Jack Neely who writes the one for kmods has
added some pinning support like you describe.

The plugin I wrote for kmdls does not block kernel upgrades, but
instead installs kmdls for that kernel as they become available. The
reason is that perhaps a kmdl has been swallowed into the kernel (or
superseeded by the kernel's version), in this case it would block th
upgrade forever.
