I can confirm that kernel-smp-devel and kenrel-hugemem-devel are upgrade
and not install packages via yum.  This is not a problem for booting,
just for building things on older kernels.  This is a yum issue that can
be worked around if you want (I don't think everyone would want the
devel packages as install ... at least I don't anything but the latest
kernel-devel packages, except on a couple devel machines).

If you want to make kernel-smp-devel and kernel-hugemem-devel be install
vice update, then add them to a line like this:

installonlypackages=kernel-smp-devel kernel-hugemem-devel

that should make it work the way you want.
