Introducing RedPatch (Ksplice Blog)

What is misleading about it? I might be naïve, but to me it *does* seem useful to be able to conveniently look up what changes went into the kernel a large number of users are testing. It also means there is a git repository I can point to and ask people to bisect in. And if I end up needing to develop against RHEL for some reason, "git blame" will finally work.

At the very least, it's misleading propaganda because Oracle is doing to MySQL this very same thing which RedHat does to the kernel. So Oracle being self-righteous about it won't wash.
RH does it to annoy Oracle, and Oracle does it to annoy MariaDB.
