Thanks for all the great stuff.

Executive Summary:  Kernel Parameters or Special Kernel for 5.2 on VMWare?

More Details:
Is it the best practice to use the specially compiled kernels (when 
available, typically here: 
http://people.centos.org/~tru/kernel-vm/5/RPMS/i386/ ) or are kernel 
parameters now able to achieve the same thing?

This bug report: http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2189 seems to 
suggest clocksource=pit and divider=10 will crash kernels and I did not 
see "it's fixed" in the release notes.

Thanks again!
