Thanks for the attention to this issue that effects every debian version including Mint back to Trusty 14.04. I copied your version 4 script into my /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal. I will post the entire output resulting from the next kernel that gets added. I have a 64 bit version of Xubuntu Xenial Xerus (development branch) 16.04 at present. I like your notes in this version: # In the common case, this results in exactly two kernels saved, but it can # result in three kernels being saved. It's better to err on the # side of saving too many kernels than saving too few. That is exactly how I've always thought it should work.

But once autoremove is completed the machine requests to be rebooted and at that time the /etc/apt/apt.conf.d /01autoremove-kernels file lists the 3.19.0-12-generic and 3.19.0-10-generic kernels. So upon rebooting the 3.19.0-11-generic is requested to be autoremoved leaving only one kernel the latest one 3.19.0-12-generic.
