To the term "thread hijacking": if you would set your list view into
thread mode you would quickly see that your mail now appears as part of
the discussion thread "first encounters with SELINUX, with some
suggestions". I feel it is obvious not that good. See the header of your
first posting and you'll find a

reference which cause the thread mixture.

Now to the real topic. Why on earth "quite often" a kernel rebuild is
necessary? What do you mean with the "RPM does not install the source in
the correct location"?

Please read the release notes and grep the list archive for the
discussion about only having a kernel SRC.RPM and not two RPMs both with
the kernel source. The discussion is closed, not need to rewarm it.
