Tested and works
I tested it by doing a yum update kernel* , which before would have tried to 
suck in ALL the kernels.  This worked correctly and just updated the kernels 
that I already had (kernel, kernel-smp, and kernel-source)

I also tested update to install something I don't already have.  I really like 
the wording you have for that failing (because it wasn't already installed)
