Um, does it matter what Oracle and RedHat are doing?

This is Centos, most users are here because they cannot afford to
pay for either RedHat or Oracle product for whatever reason.

To paraphrase a recent LWN quote-of-the-week (and not from smooge ;-)

	If you're not paying for THEIR product, you ARE their product.

If you would like be "product", while have fun!

Meanwhile if splice is useful and their is interest, you're gonna have
to generate a kernel patch stream somehow in order to make splice
Just Work (and continue to work) in CentOS.
