Well, thats the point. I use the SRPM to build the kernel-sourcecode rpm...
I guess processing the SRPM up to a certain point will leave the complete 
patch redhat/fedora version of the kernel in /usr/src/redhat/BUILD and
I can work from that. But it seems so much easier to have the kernel-sourcode
rpm so I can take it to other machines and also to have multiple kernel versions
in /usr/src...
