Firefox/21.0

After updating the kernel, obsolete kernel packages (including sources) are not
removed, possible visible in the boot menu. For example I have:
rpm -qa kernel\*
kernel-syms-3.7.10-1.11.1.i586
kernel-source-3.7.10-1.11.1.noarch
kernel-desktop-devel-3.7.10-1.16.1.i686
kernel-devel-3.7.10-1.11.1.noarch
kernel-syms-3.7.10-1.16.1.i586
kernel-docs-3.7.10-1.16.1.noarch
kernel-default-devel-3.7.10-1.11.1.i586
kernel-default-3.7.10-1.16.1.i586
kernel-pae-devel-3.7.10-1.16.1.i686
kernel-xen-devel-3.7.10-1.11.1.i686
kernel-firmware-20130114git-1.2.1.noarch
kernel-devel-3.7.10-1.16.1.noarch
kernel-default-devel-3.7.10-1.16.1.i586
kernel-desktop-devel-3.7.10-1.11.1.i686
kernel-xen-devel-3.7.10-1.16.1.i686
kernel-default-3.7.10-1.11.1.i586
kernel-pae-devel-3.7.10-1.11.1.i686
kernel-source-3.7.10-1.16.1.noarch

This is not what the user wants! Seen on three different machines.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run online update, replacing the current kernel
2. Reboot

Actual Results:
Old kernel(s) are still installed

Expected Results:
Old kernel should be removed (at least after the next successful boot)
