Hmmm .... I did not see that it was for 4.6 but thought it was for 5.2.

I can try to add the same things to the CentOS-4 kernel and see if it 
builds, but I have already done the 4.7 centosplus kernels and it is a 
several hour process that I am not going to redo before release.

I will see if I can get it to build, and put it in testing if it builds. 
  I can try to roll that into newer CentOS-4 kernels too.
