Of course, there's nothing that requires you to start *using* a kernel
update immediately when it's installed. The previous kernel is not
deleted, so you can select it from GRUB by hand until the driver update
comes out. Alternatively, you can set UPDATEDEFAULT=no in
/etc/sysconfig/kernel. Then installing a new kernel won't make it the
default in GRUB. You can reboot normally and get the old kernel until the
driver is released, then update /etc/grub.conf yourself.
