Description of problem:
The kernel-smp-devel rpm when installed with yum removes the old kernel-smp-devel rpm. This is unlike the behaviour of kernel-smp, kernel, or kernel-devel which leave the old package still installed.
This can be a problem if you update the kernel-smp and have not rebooted, but need to build something against the old image currently running.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC4-test2
2. yum -y update
3. notice that the old kernel-smp-devel is not installed
