Actually they explained what they did. They are rolling out their own kernel, but use userspace from RHEL - and of course they cherry-picked few changes needed to do that. Essentially they want to fix the "Solaris problem" by piggybacking on RHEL: Solaris had great kernel but poor userspace so it was really painfull to use so Oracle think they can avoid this problem by concentrating on kernel and enterprise (where the money are) and leaving userspace (where the support costs are) to RedHat. RedHat does not want this. It basically says: no problem, roll out your own kernel, if you wish, but then, please, support your userspace too.
