I am pretty sure that kernel was provided via a customer support call
that is hidden in bugzilla .. so we (CentOS) would not have access to
the kernel or the SRPM until they release it via the public FTP.

If they release the SRPM publicly (in a people.redhat.com directory or
somewhere else via the bugzilla, I will be happy to rebuild it and
release it as a test kernel.
