[opensuse] How can I stop Yast kernel updates from deleting /lib/modules for the old kernel?

Its very frustrating that updating from Yast causes kernel updates to
delete the /lib/modules directory for the old kernel.

If you don't immediately reboot, then any, i.e. USB, devices you plug
into your machine after the update don't work.

Worse, if the new kernel wasn't installed correctly, the old kernel
won't boot either lacking needed modules.
