The latest CentOS-5 kernels are also now shipped this way as well ...
one big Red Hat patch against the kernel tarball.

CentOS only makes 2 minor changes to the spec file before we build the
kernel (so that the generated signing key for modules says "CentOS" and
not Red Hat, Inc).  We do not roll in any additional patches into the
main kernel.   We do roll in patches into the CentOSPlus kernel ... so
you can look at the SRPM to see how we roll in our patches there.

Here is an article for you to read concerning the way Red Hat now ships
their kernel:
