If you have your own mirror, the easiest way would be to get those
bz321111 kernels in your repo.  Johnny Hughes or other CentOS devs
need to chime in here about the plan for those kernels, but my (wild)
guess is that those kernels stay there until they are no longer
needed, namely until 5.2 comes out in which the NFS bug is
(supposedly) fixed.

Or else, depending on how soon the next kernel update comes out, you
may want to wait for the centosplus kernel with the vesa framebuffer
support turned on (provided the change is made in the next release).
I will do my best in reminding Johnny of the corrections. :-)
