I solved the problem. I'm not sure whether this is an answer to the question, because the real cause turned out to be something different than I described, but I'll post it anyway... I did the following steps:

  1. Reinstall the kernel packages:

    sudo dnf reinstall kernel kernel-core kernel-headers
    
  2. After this step, the kernel booted properly, but gdm crashed with a "something went wrong"-screen. The reason for that was a corrupted package kmod-nvidia-4.9.3-200.fc25.x86_64.x86_64, which caused the nvidia kernel module not to load. I did:

    sudo dnf kmod-nvidia-4.9.3-200.fc25.x86_64-1\:375.26-1.fc25.x86_64
    sudo akmods --force --kernels 4.9.3-200.fc25.x86_64
    

    which rebuilt the kernel module.

Now everything works.
