I've found kernel   2.6.18-128 on
http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/centos/5.3/updates/x86_64/RPMS/

I skipped kernel-2.6.18-164.el5, so I ask again: does
kernel-2.6.18-164.el5 support IO statistic, I already know what man
page says :)  but I wonder if that kernel has that customization....

Thanks in advance!!
