I think you missed my logic for this case.  If there would be an
update for a kernel-module, and the update has the same Requires: as
an existing installed kernel-module of the same name, then replace the
installed one with the new one, but don't touch any others that have
Requires: for a different kernel.

and I think you missed my point: rpm can't do that.

it doesn't just update a single older version - it updates ALL older
versions.

Mm, you *could* do that by doing a "manual" update of erasing the specific older version of the package and installing the new, instead of using rpm's normal update procedure. Actually this has been brought up before on the subject of kernel-module packages, on freshrpms-list IIRC. I wasn't excited about doing such a "manual" update from apt for this special case then and I'm not now either :)
