I don't know about the kernel per se, but one thing I really appreciated about Red Hat is that when there's a security advisory for an application, they will, when possible, backport the fix instead of forcing you to upgrade to version n+1. That's a really great thing to have in a production environment when you don't need more features, just less bugs.
