(Still has the -debuginfo problem.)

rpm's erasure ordering is known to still have problems (not only the
CLI; yum exhibits the same problem).  This problem is not limited to
kernel module packages nor leftover dirs; for example %postun scriptlets
are affected too (/boot/System.map-%{kver} may have disappeared in this
case).  Dunno if PreReq instead of Requires, or Requires +
Requires(postun) instead of Requires would help.
