voidlinux remove old kernels & modules

I noticed while updating my void that kernels were being updated, but old ones weren't being removed. Removing orphan packages didn't remove those old files either.

Google News[2] redesign is awful, atrocious, not fit for purpose... and the internet is fuming, just like when the much loved Google Reader was killed. But does the Big G care? Apparently not! We noticed that attitude, when Google Plus was imposed on everyone. As Google effectively deprecates all devices on older Android versions, with every new Android version.

That's the price for wanting to live with Google. It's their road, or the highway. Use them, but don't depend on them. Yeah, and before you forget.. Don't be evil!
