Try yum update when the oldest installed kernel (and the running 
kernel) is the only one that works and there is a new (still broken for 
your system) kernel update available. In that case one really wouldn't 
expect the running kernel be removed. Having to remove a specific kernel before 
doing an update (to make sure the wrong one wasn't removed) would be 
a pain.
