Please be aware that redhat releases GFS at a different time than the, 
usually 2-3 days later (at the earliest).

In this case, here are the upstream release dates:

kernel - 5/7/2008
gfs kmods - 5/9/2008

my point is that even upstream does not release these  at the same time.

What you should do (and what everyone who has kmods on c4 should do) is 
to exclude kernels from automatic updates ... then you can manually 
update the kernels and kmods together separately.
