No, that's the kernel already built for you.

But note: There is a new kernel in build and new kmdl for that kernel,
so you may want to hold off for 12-24h before installing. You can of
course already install the 8.1.4 kernel and then let yum update (with
the yum-plugin-kmdl) do its magic.

Yes, all kmdls are built for the vendor kernel and the suspend2 kernels.

Point yum to ATrpms and do

yum install kernel-suspend2

Boot into it and if you want some kmdl like madwifi do

yum install madwifi madwifi-kmdl-`uname -r`

If you want to do that before booting into the new kernel then replace
`uname -r` with the uname-r-to-be.
