19 Did you emerge them by the exact version at some point? If you emerge
20 the kernel and specify the version, it is recorded in the world file
21 along with the version and --depclean will not remove it since it is
22 specifically listed. I have done this in the past to keep the current
23 running kernel installed and --depclean not wanting to remove it.
