post kernel update 3.13.0-88-generic ixgbe 4.1.5 version shows 3.15.1-k

My previous ubuntu kernel was : linux-image-3.13.0-61-generic

Ixgbe version : ii ixgbe 4.1.5

I have upgraded to kernel version :-

modinfo ixgbe

filename: /lib/modules/3.13.0-88-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/ixgbe/ixgbe.ko version: 3.15.1-k

I need to install the same ixgbe version 4.1.5. But i am unable to update the ixgbe driver.

command to remove the driver : rmmod, dpkg -r, apt-get purge, all seems not to remove the ixgbe.ko files and other related files. even after removal modinfo ixgbe show the ixgbe driver.

So if I install the same ixgbe 4.1.5 deb package it shows the same ixgbe version 3.15.1-k.

Need your expert help.
