[mythtv-users] Updating mythtv with atrpms without updating kernel and kmdls

Sorry if this has been covered before but I've been reading this list and 
upgrading and such for over a year and haven't quite figured it out yet.

Once I have all the hardware working (after upgrading or after setting up a 
new box) I want to leave it alone... so I don't don't want to update kernels 
or kernel modules.  But occasionally I'd like to update mythtv to get fixes 
from the fixes branch.  In fact I wouldn't mind updating any user space 
software.  But "yum update" seems to want to upgrade everything.

I've seen messages indicating partial updates with atrpms is bad so yum 
update \*myth*\ would not be wise.

What is the best way to do what I want without messing up dependencies?  
Just do "yum update" and somehow remove the new kernel?  Or maybe something 
like yum update --exclude=<kernel>?  What's the best known method for this?
