vorlon: Even if it's not technically needed on the apt side, because there is no meta package, it does help to have the list consistent. For eoan, we'll even move to just ^linux-.*$ (to avoid having to add new kernels when they appear), so it will be covered anyway.

On the other hand, it does have the advantage that if you do install unsigned kernels for some reason, they'll get automatically removed by unattended-upgrades with the pattern being present if they are outdated as part of the normal versioned kernel removal.
