[CentOS] 12V computing?

Thanks every one for putting so much effort in your responses, we have
ordered one to test with.

Fwiw, why it is 12V and using other voltages was way off topic. We are using
12V due to interoperability requirements. The environment it is going into
has on pair of redundant line to 12V power supplies and an internal battery
backup. There all other internal components operating at this 12V level.
That being said, we are trying to reduce the current draw of every device
vs. production and development costs (nice parametric equation in excel...).

Lastly, every piece of "compiled by us" goes through extra certification
(certify source, dev, test, production binaries = $$$), so we are not going
to recompile the kernel, and that is why we choose RHEL/Centos, as they are
binary compatible and reviewed.
