Please do not read ANYTHING into my comments about this other than explicitly what I stated.
I thank Max for doing this work as it is great stuff and benifits all of the distros when he does so. It has nothing to do with how Red Hat distributes their kernel and my viewpoint of that being a "better" way or not at all.
My personal opinion is that Red Hat is fine in doing this if they want to. It's their kernel, their process, and they are abiding by the GPL just fine.
