The wiki article:


was written for _CentOS_ kernels as stated on the page:

" This tutorial will cover the building of a kernel from the CentOS
sources with your own options or modifications. It is written
primarily for CentOS-5. "

The bcat kernel is a mainline kernel. It was _built_ to run under
CentOS.  So, the contents of the CentOS wiki would not apply.  In
fact, the upcoming CentOS-6 kernel would require a new section (rather
than modifying the existing one) because the tutorial will be
different in many places.
