Red Hat can't prevent you (or anybody) from running diff against a (small number of) file(s) from the vanilla vs. RHEL kernel sources (from the SRPM). This is infeasible for all of the kernel, but if a problem can be localised to an individual driver or other manageable subsystem, this may be all that is needed for a third party to figure out what changes Red Hat has made to that particular part of the kernel.
