This is the kernel update to fix the Spectre/Meltdown.

And the VMs can't boot once installed?

Nope. Mine actually shut off.
Reverting to snapshot was only fix I had. Some people get booted into kernel panic and can edit grub to use old kernel, but not mine.
I only did this on two servers, then did some GoogleFu and found this RedHat thread.

Our DC sent a warning about this. And they said it's not just VMs, could also happen to bare metal.
