If things are working for you, you don't necessarily have to upgrade the 
kernel.  If you're running kernel 2.6.9-11, then you're most likely 
already running the latest (at least until update 2 is released)

You could always remove that kernel exclusion, then opt whether or not 
to put a checkmark next to the kernel when you run up2date.

Keep in mind that if you use nvidia's graphics driver, or other kernel 
modules added after the fact, you'll have to re-install/re-build them.
