Following up, the thinkwiki suggests that this patch is now in the 
kernel 2.6.16 development.  So now the patch is "blessed."  Maybe it can 
wait for 2.6.16 to be rolled in, but my concern is now with timing.  
Will kernel updates be rolled in all through FC development, or will 
there be a stabilizing point at which the kernel needs to freeze (more 
than just a week or two before release, I mean)?

And more generally, will FC5 be as aggressive with updates (both kernel 
and otherwise) as FC4, or was that a special circumstance due to the 
long development window for FC5?  Just curious.
