[CentOS-devel] there's something happened between kernel 2.6.28-128.1.1 and 2.6.18-128.1.6 compilation

kernel-2.6.18-128.1.6.el5.src.rpm from upstream provider can be
rebuilded without any problems with mock. You must set proper target
architectures in mock:
   $ mock --target noarch,i686,i386 -r redhat-5.3-i386
kernel-2.6.18-128.1.6.el5.src.rpm

Rebuilded package has unifdef:
   $ rpm -qp --requires kernel-2.6.18-128.1.1.el5.src.rpm | grep unifdef
unifdef
