There is zero chance of a x.<odd number>.y kernel going into any
Red Hat Linux release.  Kernels with odd numbers in the minor
version are specifically unstable development kernels by
definition, and regardless of what good or experiences any
individual experiences while using them on a specific computer or
computers, the development kernel series is unsuitable for
widespread deployment in a stable operating system environment,
and there is no chance of it ever occuring in an official
supported Red Hat Linux OS release.
