You should not need to roll-back or downgrade the driver. As explained in the first link, the latest version of the RHEL7/CentOS7 driver have added the "Pressure2K" option to work around software like Mari and Nuke that don't properly handle the expanded pressure range.

rpm -q xorg-x11-drv-wacom
and verify that it indicates you have version "0.34.2-2". Earlier releases do not support this option. Afterwards, create a file in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d directory with the following contents:

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "Wacom pressure compatibility"
MatchDriver "wacom"
Option "Pressure2K" "true"
You can check that the option is enabled by grepping through the Xorg log file for the string "Pressure2K" or checking the behavior of Mari/Nuke.

in order to roll back something you have to have that in which to roll back to. in other words if you got a copy of different versions of something then depending on dependencies of each version yes you can try installing the different versions until you find one that works. Just remove the prior one first. rebooting or logging out and in again too maybe required.

if they are rpm's then command line install should work, if it is source make sure your makefile has a uninstall rule in it so you can easily uninstall it if needed. you can put one in yourself if needed before you compile the source. Or just follow the instructions.
