  At the risk of starting a flame-war, I avoid RedHat's "standard" kernels
like the plague, as my network throughput is significantly slower.  My
compiling a kernel with exactly what I need, I get a much higher
throughput - along the order of several megabytes per second.  With
everything that they enable in their kernels, I imagine that other aspects
would also suffer.  Whether that extra bit of performance is necessary
depends, of course, on your situation.  YMMV.
