No, only the last 1-2 kmdls are kept around (that's not a technical
issue, but a space capacity one).

There is exactly one src.rpm that generates all these packages. :)
Rebuilding from src.rpm is a bit involved. You will need a kernel
build environment with matching kernel sources (e.g. kernel-devel for
your sources may be enough, I'm using the full blown out source tree
to be sure). You'll also need to deposit the kmdl macros under
/etc/rpm/macros which you can find under atrpms-devel or simple
googling, e.g. http://www.google.com/search?q=3Dkmdl_namepureof
But rebuilding kernel module packages is not for the faint of heart,
it would be far less pain for yourself to update 2054 to a more recent
release. Also consider the security implications of running network
services like openafs on kernels with known security issues.
