YHO doesn't help that he's trying to use an older minor revision of
the RPMs he's using with a newer minor revision of modules; The kernel
version is entirely irrelevant.
foo-1-(`uname -r`) would still be older than foo-2-(`uname -r`).
Your arguments may well be valid for what they are, but they have no
bearing on this.
