Ideally, something like this should be hooked up to apt, with an
appropriate config option somewhere among the unattended upgrades or
autoremove settings.

Do we keep a successful boot flag for each kernel somewhere? It would be
nice if the tool kept the currently running kernel, and the 3-5 previous
kernels that have successfully booted.
