RedHat (and thus CentOS) backports esentual drivers and patches.  Even
though the kernel version is 2.6.18 (CentOS/RHEL 5), it contains bits
and pieces from newer kernels.  There is also the elrepo repository,
which contains a pile of additional kernel modules (drivers mostly) that
RedHat does not build.  Check the elrepo elrepo repository -- your
driver might be there.
