EMC PowerPath & Kernel Updates

I accidently did an update of a test server using 'yum update', realizing I'd get a new kernel but forgetting the new kernel would break my PowerPath setup. It's EMC's software for getting multi-pathing and we use version 5.0.0 (EMCpower.LINUX-5.0.0-157.rhel). I should have used up2date because it knows how to update and skip undesired packages, such as the kernel... Oh well.
*Nix hacks had some tips to fix PowerPath after kernel updates. You simply need to reinstall the package and force a replacement.
