Now, after doing this, I still have this kernel in /boot:

Yes, that is one option. But how do I make sure I got all the stale
files? If a package is known by apt, I can use "dpkg -L <package name"
to see which files are installed and where. In this case, however, dpkg
cannot tell me that.

cruft can.

Package: cruft

Description: Find any cruft built up on your system
cruft is a program to look over your system for anything that shouldn't be there, but is; or for anything that should be there, but isn't. It bases most of its results on dpkg's database, as well as a list of `extra files' that can appear during the lifetime of various packages. cruft is still in pre-release; your assistance in improving its accuracy and performance
 is appreciated.

So I installed cruft and it produced a 24MB report. I don't even know how to look at that. And what means '---- missing USERS ----'?
