Hi, not to mention the war again but you do have a alternative (stream) 
and the fabled kernel-ml which has been working fine in production 
servers according to my experiences (fleet of over 400 servers virtual 
and physical).

And assuming you are talking about CentOS 8.x there are several 
alternative distros out there to choose from if you do need a point 
release rather then rolling forward (as stream is-ish).

I might have missed something during the threads lifespan but what are 
the reasons for not using the kernel-ml packages?
