Did some more digging this morning.

All physical machines are quite okay with the 6.8 upgrade.

All virtual machines running on Hyper-V get a kernel panic - if the linux
integration services (lis) are installed on the guest.

Uninstalling lis, then applying the kernel-2.6.32-642.el6.x86_64 and
rebooting works just fine. No kernel panics.

Supposedly (according to some forum posts I read) the lis shouldn't care
what kernel is actually running, as long as it is compiled with a kernel
that is installed and available on the system, in this case the last
previous before the 6.8-upgrade.

In any case, problem solved for now.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Marking thread as solved.
