This is an open bug at Redhat.  Originally they said, 'gee we will fix 
this for 5.3'.  Tim Verhoeven pointed out that would leave all of us 
with this problem back at the 5.1 kernel and no security patches until 
5.3.  I pointed out that you cannot even do a fresh install of 5.2 on 
such a server.  Hopefully, they will get the message and fix this.
