There's a thinko here somewhere. You need to protect the kernel package
or the dependencies of the kmod* packages, if you cannot ensure that
a kernel update [and all its updated deps] is fully compatible feature-wise.

Have you experimented with yum.conf's   protected_packages  yet?

Alternatively, increase the  installonly_limit  value to allow for many
more kernel updates to be installed in parallel without removing older
ones. As a last resort, create an own local package that depends on
stuff you don't want to have removed.
