Quoting from a discussion thread on the elrepo-devel mailing list [1]:

With respect to kmodtool, we (well, Alan mostly) have now updated the
vast majority of packages to use the new kmodtool template. We don't
have a centralized build system so the only way to look/diff kmodtool
for all packages is to pull the SRPMs.

In summary, the main differences over this distro shipped kmodtool are:

1. Provides: kabi-modules = ${verrel}${variant}

kmodtool normally has a Provide for kernel-modules that prevents yum
from updating kmod packages. However, for a kABI tracking kmod package,
updating (rather than installing kernel dependent versions) makes sense
so we changed the Provide to kabi-modules to facilitate this behaviour
in yum.

OK, We have removed the kernel-module provide so that it will upgrade and not install the kmods. This should now work with a yum install and yum upgrade.

Confirmed working correctly now. Stress testing the x86_64 kmod-xen though I have no non-xen and no 32 bit DRBD systems to test on.
