As you can see in my earlier note (and the referenced bug tracker)
that was posted almost at the same time as yours, when I attempted to
add a relatime patch to the centosplus kernel, it did break the kABI.
Therefore it was not applied (there was a workaround however).

At any rate, the point I wanted to make is that the centosplus kernel
must remain (and has been) kABI-compatible with the distro/RHEL
kernel.
