Take a look at the changelog for your kernel.  What you will see is that
the kernel is based on a "release candidate" of 2.6.16, which since it
was put together prior to the actual release of 2.6.16 (which apparently
coincided on Monday?), continues to be called 2.6.15....  There was a
thread about this on the -devel list but essentially stuff in the "rc"
kernel is a "pre-release", so the Red Hat folks keep to the
original/release number....

Try, "rpm -q --changelog kernel" and look near the top of the output to
see exactly which kernel Dave has re-based to....
