Nouveau reloaded on upgrade to kernel 4.07

After updating a couple days ago, the default kernel (4.07) boots up, but Gnome shows the "Something Went Wrong" screen.

If I manually choose the 4.06 kernel everything boots up correctly.

Looking at /var/log/Xorg.0.log while booted under kernel 4.07, I can see that nouveau is being loaded on the 4.07 kernel instead of nvidia. However when I try to reinstall RPMFusions's nvidia binaries it says they are already installed so it skips them.

Rebooting into 4.06 everything works again.

I have the RPMFusion repository enabled and already had nvidia working. I've already gone through at least one kernel upgrade on Fedora 22 without incident.

You reinstall by using the command dnf reinstall <whatever>. Not dnf install.
