It's far easier to modify /etc/sysctl.conf  and run sysctl -p to read
in the new values than rebuild a new kernel and reboot. Using the
sysctl mechanism you don't even have any downtime. If you want to have
this set up for new installs, simply use sed/awk in a %post script for
a kickstart file and you can do whatever you want.
