And your /lib/modules is about 90MB/kernel if you are using default

what hardware you have.

Surely the sane solution there is to put /usr/share on a separate 
partition, not /usr.

If I have to split things like this up, I usually have a data volume and 
I bind-mount or symlink things from there to the relevant paths.
