That is okay. We call depmod in the PKGBUILD so kernel26 will own those 
files and they will be properly uninstalled when the kernel is removed 
or updated.

After the m-i-t 3.5 update, those .bin files were generated on your 
system, but were not contained in the kernel package yet. The new 
package is generated with the new m-i-t, thus contains them. We have to 
force-upgrade that one so pacman will again be able to track those files 
and delete them when appropriate.
