Previous replies to your query indicate that OpenSuse keeps only one kernel
online, therefore you are given a decline option when it is about to be
upgraded.  Apparently there is no simple back-out.

Fedora keeps more-than-one kernel (and always the currently running kernel)
when upgrading the kernel.  Therefore, your back-out option if you don't
like the new kernel for some reason is to simply re-write grub.conf or specify
an older kernel when booting your computer.

I don't see where anything more should be necessary.
