I don't recall having ever seen a security problem in the RHEL/CentOS 
kernel that didn't affect the upstream sources.

There's no need to rely on impressions, though.  Go to:
Select "security" to trim down the number of entries listed.  Search for 
"kernel" and open each one.  The errata notice will state "This update 
fixes the following security issue:" and include a CVE ID.  You can look 
that up to see if the upstream kernel is affected.
