That's not yet enough, it was shown last year, that any scheme not
having the uname -r in the name of the package (the rpm name as in
contrast to the rpm version/release) can only support the very latest

But ATrpms has kmdls (w/ the uname -r in name) and a yum plugin that
simply work. Check that out, if you like.
