"Locked", meaning you're running a ~3 old OS with no security or bugfix 
updates?    thats not good.

All centos 6 systems are the same base version 2.6.32 kernel, with fixes 
and updates backported.   If you're asking, can you run the 2.6.32-573 
kernel with a 6u5 everything-else, well, everything else was never 
tested with that kernel.
