I do "live" updates of minor RedHat version changes all the time
using RPM.  In fact, I _prefer_ to do this for my production servers
and critical workstations.

Grab the 2.4.7 XFS pre-release and install it alongside the RedHat
7.2 RPMs manually.

BTW, H. J. Lu just reported over on the NFS list that RedHat's 2.4.9
kernel update just _failed_ the NFS connect-a-thon tests.  So you
might want to stick with 2.4.7 anyway.  ;-PPP
