Thanks for the quick reply.. Will do that after next kernel update 
that has the orphaned sub directory. Only happens to me on 
machines that have the extra custom module that needs to be built 
for USB wifi adapter. Seems update doesn't handle there 
directores link to that.

Have modified script a little after running shelldir on script.
Latest is:
find ./*x86_64 -maxdepth 0 >x1
y=$(find /boot/vmlinuz*x86_64 | cut -b15-100)
for a in $y; do sed -i "/$a/d" x1; done 
while read -r line; do 
	echo "$line";
	rm -rf ./"$line"/;
done <x1
rm x1

It didn't like the ls and grep and recommended read and the sed 
improved the processing.

Seems to work for me, but don't know all the variations that 
people might have. So would recommend commenting out the rm 
line or putting an echo in front to see what it would do first.
