BTW ATrpms also packages up for the plus kernel at CentOS.

Personally I would also prefer Paul's setup - not that the CentOS plus
kernels are bad, on the contrary I know the very capable people
putting them together. But the RHEL stock kernel has far more testing
resources and is therefore a better base to start with and add kmdls
as you need them. If some unrelated subsystem breaks (e.g. not one you
replaced with a kmdl) you know that you can report it as far as RH
itself to see it fixed.
