I don't know if there is any documentation about that, but what I do is:
- remove the kernel and pcmcia packages that are in use (yes, there's a
warning saying that it's dangerous to remove a running kernel's
- install the new kernel package, and then the pcmcia one.

Simply, do not try rebooting between the two stages...
