how exactly where you planning on managing out-of-tree kernel drivers otherwise ?

btw, since this is a stable distro you are using, the chances are that the same 
driver will work through the life of the product. Try this command : 
/sbin/weak-modules and register the driver you have against that. Then reinstall 
  the updated kernel and the driver should move along.

I shall try and do some more specific docs on this, in the centos wiki, over the 
next few days.
