Yes, that's why I was asking--I was wondering whether it is safe to wait
for what could be some time for a) RHEL to decide to patch (if they do
so at all), b) RHEL to patch, and c) CentOS to patch. IOW, is the high
load the only likely symptom of the originail aild patch, or are there
potentially other problems, such as performance degradation that I
haven't seen yet, that would make waiting for CentOS unwise?

This actually gives me some optimism that RHEL might introduce a new
kernel sooner rather than later--that kernel wasn't all that long ago,
and there have been quite a few (mostly unrelated) patches since.
(That's why I was so surprised--I'm not used to the RHEL kernel moving
