Now is not the time for doing partial updates, my personal idea about this is: 
you should have waited with your update or just updated everything.

To answer your real question: you can no longer safely reboot.
You could indeed try by downgrading kmod below 'kmod 9-2' but there is no 
guarantee that anything will work.
If you have any other extra kernel modules installed, you also should have 
ignored them until you are willing to do a complete upgrade.
