I just removed all but the running kernel (on a system that was a fresh
install of F11) and got a similar result:

# rpm -e $(rpm -qf /boot/vmlinuz* | grep -v "kernel-$(uname -r)")
# df -h /boot
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md0              194M   15M  169M   9% /boot

That's right at the edge, and could push untested corner cases in
anaconda with respect to temp files and such.

I don't think increasing /boot just because of preupgrade is a viable
solution, as the installer image continues to grow.  Is it possible
instead to put the installer image (the real problem) somewhere else,
like /?  Why does it need to be in /boot?
