The financial services companies do seem to use a wide variety of distribution and custom kernels (judging by support tickets seen at Solarflare). I'm not sure their rapid upgrade cycles are really a model for anyone else though - there is always a significant cost and risk to infrastructure changes, and the benefits of a minor upgrade tend to be less clear in other environments.
