kernel-devel don't depend on kernel

Description of problem:
When remove an old kernel package via yum, the devel package of the old one will
not removed automatic.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update to an new kernel via yum update
3. remove the old one via yum remove kernel-2.6.XXXXX
The devel package of the old kernel will not removed.
The the old kernel and his devel package will be removed.
this is deliberate. People wanted the ability to build a module for multiple
kernel versions without necessarily having those kernels installed.
If I add the depends, it will pull the kernels in too.
