You only need to install an updated kernel-module for your new kernel if
there is no update to the nvidia-glx-legacy package itself.
This is not done by yum when you update the kernel because the kernel
does no depend on the kernelmodule.
With uname -r you will always get the correct module after a kernel
update.
