It turns out Apple sneaked in a kernel update with this time machine update, I guess to remind us that any update can kill our systems. It updates the kernel to 9.2.2, of course overriding your current kernel to a vanilla.

 

To fix this you'll have to find a way to replace the mach_kernel and system.kext files to your old 9.2.0 version.

 

A good rule of thumb is to have a backup kernel on the root (with proper permissions) that is named differently. This way, if Apple ever sneaks another update, you'll have a backup to turn to to at least get to your desktop and fix whatever needs to be fixed.
