Do you mean, you ran yum update on a Fedora 20 install?

1 and 2 are basically two different kernels - when you install a new kernel, a new entry
is created in the grub menu. If you want to remove a grub option
you can edit the grub config file usually located in /boot.  

Unless it's a kernel module or an applicaiton which takes any advantage of a feature in 
3.17 kernel, I believe user-level apps shouldn't be affected.

There is of course a way to upgrade to Fedora 21 when it's released. 

Hope that helps.
