[CentOS] Getting something into centosplus for 5.2?

I've got a USB to serial adapter that I picked up from Radio Shack
earlier this year.  The updated pl2303 driver is already in the
mainstream kernel as per
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=429652 but I'm not getting
much traction from Red Hat as far as them updating the kernel.  So every
time there's an updated kernel, I have to rebuild the srpm.

I figure that this is the kind of situation that -plus is meant to
solve... I've already had to switch one of my boxes over to plus today
given that the video4linux srpm (from atrpms) won't rebuild easily on
2.6.18-92.1.6.el5, and I'm thinking that having both on plus with
everything I need in them would make it a lot easier...

(There's already precedent here... I found
linux-2.6.18-bz443853_powernow_null_deref.patch and
linux-2.6.18-bz444759_hi_iowait.patch in the srpm...)

Thanks for reading...
