I do not have to read it (although I understood you the first time). My 
production server is not going to be a ginipig for developers. And I, so 
far, rebuilt over 100 packages including newer Qt for C6.

There is a repo (ELRepo) run by knowledgeable kernel 
developers/packagers, with 10 times more knowledge about kernels then 
me. And their package was build from most stable version, taking RHEL 
kernel oddities into account, and already tested. Why would I (or anyone 
else) "invent hot water"??

Getting out from the slippery bath tub is one "command" to my brain, but 
I managed to almost cut my palm in two when porcelain sink I was leaning 
onto (I almost never did that before, and never again) broke to peaces. 
If I had passed out (and I almost did), I would not be here now. Crude 
analogy, but very real for me, my thumb lost normal sensitivity for 
ever, as a reminder.

So for me, there is no more easy getting out of the tub, and no easy 
kernel module builds for production use. Not to mention the need to 
follow module development for patches and rebuilding newer versions, etc...
