Yes, I have a similar problem.

I looked over the kernel.spec and found no change to the upgrade scripts.

The grubby package hasn't been updated in F15 either, which is what the 
kernel post-install scripts call to build the initramfs and friends 
(where DKMS was somehow called).

I'm not sure what has changed at this point, but I'm pretty sure it has 
nothing to do with the kernel package. It must be with grubby and one of 
its processes no longer calls DKMS.

If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful. If not... off to bugzilla I go.
