So long as I can do a 'yum update' and not get the next y-stream
packages until the actual y-stream is released proper, I am happy. In
other words, so long as the stability of my nodes is not effected in any
way, and compatibility with upstream also remains, I am happy. :)

I'm ashamed to say that I neglected to do so. I saw kernel oopses while
working on other things and didn't get back to them... I'll be sure to
file a bug next I see it.
