[CentOS] Please test kmod packages for CentOS-4

Hello,

There are currently 3 kmod packages in CentOS-4 that require
re-installation upon each kernel update:

kmod-drbd
kmod-drbd82
kmod-xfs

CentOS is going to offer a kernel-independent version of these kmod
packages.  With this version, you install once, and they should
survive kernel updates.  They are in the testing repository at the
moment and need to be tested before they can be made available from
the regular place (extras repo).  Getting enough testing is important
because CentOS may not be providing kernel-specific kmod-packages any
longer.

If you have never used the testing repository, please refer to the Wiki article:

http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

Happy testing!

Akemi
