A dirty trick: 

1. Do rpm --upgrade for MySQL-server, MySQL-client, 
   MySQL-devel but not for MySQL-shared. 
2. Save /usr/lib/libmysqlclient.so.10* into somewhere
3. Do rpm --erase --force MySQL-shared 
4. Do rpm --install MySQL-shared
5. Move saved files back to /usr/lib
6. Run ldconfig as root. 

In result, you will have the older v10 libs intact for various software.
