It depends on script 
/etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal and when it is run last time, which 
installed kernels it does NOT remove. `apt-get autoremove` removes other 
packages that are automatically installed and that no package depends on, too, 
which may or may not be wanted. It may be unable to remove old kernels in some 
cases when /boot or system is full. My script is designed to handle such cases, 
too. My script can even remove kernels that are unknown to the package 
management system.
