Yes, that happened to me too, after updating Tuesday morning ...
except nothing seems to be wrong with libc.  I get bootup messages
from mount about not being able to find libc.so, followed by a full
SELinux relabel and then a system crash.  But if I boot off a rescue
disk, I can successfully chroot /mnt/sysimage and use the system.  I
ran rpm -Va and found nothing significant.  I rebuilt the dracut image
and the boot seemed to proceed normally, up to where X should have
started.  At that point, the whole system froze.  This looks like a
kernel or dracut issue, not a libc issue.

I'm happy to attempt to narrow this down further, if someone can tell
me what to do next.  Otherwise, like Andy, I plan to blow the whole
thing away and reinstall from scratch.  (Mine's a virtual machine,
rather than a partition, by the way.)
