[CentOS] Centosplus kernel does not have framebuffer support?

I'm still using CentOS 4.6, but have been planning an upgrade to  
CentOS 5 for quite a while.  One of the things that was holding me  
back is that the CentOS 5.0 kernel did not have the framebuffer  
support enabled by default.  So I waited for CentOS 5.1.  However, on  
one of my test systems I ran into the bad NFS performance issue (see  
CentOS bug 2635), so I plan to use the centosplus kernel.  However,  
it appears that this kernel does not have the framebuffer support  
enabled -- arrgghhh!

So, is this just an oversight or is there a reason for not enabling  
the framebuffer support on the centosplus kernel?
