Suggestion: boot to the previous kernel. If that works, reinstall the
update, then reboot to it.

We had real issues months back, where a yum-cron appeared to half-ignore
the exclude=kernel line in yum.conf, and it would consistently fail to
boot, but once the above was done, reinstalling the latest kernel, *then*
it rebooted with no problem.
