According to Mihamina Rakotomandimby:
# How to tell pacman "OK for the upgrades, but dont upgrade the kernel for
# now"?

pacman -Syu --ignore linux

will skip the kernel when upgrading the system. You can do this as many
times as you like, until you are ready to allow the kernel upgrade, at
which time, you just run 'pacman -Syu' normally.
