Yeah, but it isn't as CentOS as it sounds, either. The distributed
kernels have up to 700 patches (2.6.9 last time I counted) against them,
stuff tends to get backported into the released kernels, there are
performance patches and other patches for whatnot in that kernel.

So yes, it might be that it is easy to just compile the kernel. But the
outcome might not be what you expect it to be.
