Indeed it looks like I did, just figured it out. Looks like one of the

apparently accidentally installed) for OpenCL before giving up and

for the amdkfd module that wasn't there. Removed that file, re-ran
dracut and I'm successfully in the new kernel.
Yes that is unfortunately a long standing bug with the amdgpu-pro
package from AMD.
If you remove it again, it leave those files /etc/dracut.conf.d ,
and the result is a black screen on reboot.
I have used amdgpu-pro for a long time for OpenCL too; but you have
to use a 'conservative' kernel, as the package is never up to date
with latest fedora kernels. With Fedora 29 I use the last 18.x version
with kernel 4.18 - I don't know what the new 19.x version supports.
