I think --oldpackage is the key.  Get a list of the offending packages:

    rpm -qa --last

and keep all the packages from that last mistaken update.  Download the
corresponding package from the F7 repo; a bit of editing might produce a
set of commands for either yumdownloader or yum with the downloadonly
plugin.  Install them all at once as a single command -- a single
transaction will avoid breakage -- with "rpm --oldpackage"; xargs may help
here.  Good luck and reboot ASAP!
