The kspiceusb-kmod package remains upstream. The above bug only
pointed out a case where an error occurred *during removal* of the rpm
package.

The kspiceusb-kmod package remains in CentOS because it is GPLv2,
whereas spice-usb-redirector (now spice-usb-share) was removed because
it's Proprietary.

HTH,
