You can safely removepkg the kernels:

removepkg kernel-modules-armv{5,7}*armv*-arm*
removepkg kernel_armv{5,7}*arm-*
The output installation you included was complaining for two reasons:
1. /boot doesn't permit symlinks (presumably because it's FAT or something else that doesn't support symlinks)
2. Because your system isn't configured with the Kernel command line parameter needed for Slackware to determine the running Kernel package name (which it shouldn't because the RPi is not a supported system).
Thanks, that makes sense, and yes the /boot is fat32, which explains the link issue.
