Because kmod- packages are excluded from automated pruning.

This is correct for final releases of the distribution, but apparently not

Does Rawhide contain only a single kernel package release at a time? It
seems so. If that is true, we can simply drop "kmod-" from the whitelist,
and let repoprune kill the old package releases.
