This happened to me the other day when that kernel came out. "init"
would not reload on the kernel update and yum stalled.

I had reboot into the old kernel rpm -e the 128 kernel and yum update
kernel again and all was fine. I do have to say this machine was memory
limited and swapping on update bad.
