This update set (if you were not using the CR repo before) performed an
upgrade from CentOS-7.1.1503 to CentOS-7.2.1511 .. which included a
rebase of KDE from 4.10 to 4.14 and Xorg from 1.15 to 1.17 .. it also
included a kernel upgrade which requires a reboot.

Restarting X would definitely be required.

So, if after the restart things are working then that is to be expected.

I would reboot after the major update if at all possible.
