Since xen is not used, removing kmod_xfs_xen allow yum to complete update process.
Comment 2 James Antill 2013-03-14 15:24:15 EDT
This kind of problem should be gone in RHEL-6, as we use a different method/process to install kernel modules.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red 
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.

Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux update release for currently deployed products.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in 
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a 
conservative approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in 
maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary 
objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform 
support and to resolve critical defects.
