Since somebody from Nouveau told me on this list that installing Nvidia drivers is not a one way ticket that will prevent users to get back to Nouveau and that RPMfusion should provide instructions to remove kmod-nvidia, I'm following the instructions provided by RPMfusion. The instructions are the following:
Disable or uninstall the nvidia driver
It is possible to disable the driver without uninstalling the nvidia package.
Or you can switch the Driver field from nvidia to nouveau in /etc/X11/xorg.conf You also need to verify that /boot/grub/grub.conf doesn't contain nomodeset or rdblacklist=nouveau anymore.
Then you will need to reboot. (or switch to init3 and manually unloading/loading modules.).
Once done, if you really want to uninstall the driver:
yum remove xorg-x11-drv-nvidia\* livna-config-display
Here's what Darr suggested:

As you can see, Mr Chauvet, who wrote those instructions, didn't ask to check anything in /etc/modprobe.d/ . So, I didn't.

As you can see again the word initramfs doesn't appear anywhere in the instructions provided.
For now, I only tried to disable kmod-nvidia and, as you can see here:
I didn't have much success. Maybe the kernel panic was due to something I did wrong, but I retried and I suppose things should have worked afterwards. They didn't.

Thanks for your contribution. I'm sure that with all the competent people on this list, RPMfusion will soon have some fine instructions to remove the kmod driver on its site.
