Insomuch as the next minor version of RHEL must retain kABI compatibility
yes, if you find otherwise its a bug and please let us know.

Also just a quick intro from me.  I'm going to try to participate in
threads like this while we get CentOS Stream figured out.  I'm Senior
Director of Platform Engineering at Red Hat and I currently manage Fedora,
CentOS Infrastructure, CoreOS, and about 70% of the packages in RHEL.  Jim
and his team report up through me.  Some of you may remember me from my
earlier days in the community as Fedora Infrastructure Lead (around the
time EPEL was created).

Keep the questions coming everyone and please do be patient with us while
we get things figured out.  We're trying to do it in the open but that
means we didn't build CentOS Stream behind the scenes for a grand unveiling
today.  It's going to be a bumpy few months so please do pardon our dust.
