New kernel copies its args from the Upgrade System entry

When the upgrade adds the new f18 kernel it copies the boot args from the upgrade kernel, which leaves the systemd.unit=system-upgrade.target entry in place.
This causes my system to fail boot. "Failed to get D-Bus connection: Failed to connect to socket /org/freedesktop/systemd1/private: Connection refused". Once I remove the kernel parameter, the system boots without obvious errors.
Proposing as F18 Beta Blocker per criterion "For each one of the release-blocking package sets ('minimal', and the package sets for each one of the release-blocking desktops), it must be possible to successfully complete an upgrade from a fully updated installation of the previous stable Fedora release with that package set installed, using any officially recommended upgrade mechanisms. The upgraded system must meet all release criteria."
Discussed at 2012-11-14 blocker bug meeting. Accepted as a blocker: This is relatively common and not difficult to reproduce - violates the following F18 beta release criterion: "... it must be possible to successfully complete an upgrade from a fully updated installation of the previous stable Fedora release with that package set installed, using any officially recommended upgrade mechanisms. The upgraded system must meet all release criteria."

patch to install kernel instead of upgrade
Let's reflect the status of these more accurately...
It should be fixed now and as the build already exists, setting it MODIFIED to be more accurate before the update is created.

- install new kernel without removing old ones (#876366)
fedup-dracut-0.7.1-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
I have done two upgrades today with fedup-0.7.1-1.fc17 and the new system booted without a glitch. systemd targets were no longer part of the boot items.
fedup-dracut-0.7.1-1.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
