-Uvh on a kernel is a *bad* idea. There are reaons why yum etc
always install rather update.
The most obvious reason being
- if the update fails, you lose your existing kernel
- if the update doesn't boot, you lose.
There were some other less obvious reasons that make this
a bad idea too. Just don't do it.
