That's true, I was using those kernels as a base for my own kernels with
some stuff added. I also reported some issues and solutions for those
kernels and they have been integrated and can be found in RHEL5.6/5.7. So,
that's really missing for EL6 and even with a RHN account I don't know how
I should be able to have access to kernels for EL6.
