  Oracle pushes Redhat quite some recently. Looking into Oracle
database - one can run asmlib on RHEL6 only with Oracle kernel. Also
smartcache functionality is available only for Oracle Linux users. Now
Ksplice.

  It is somewhat strange to push your upstream so much. Unless Oracle
is planning to buy Redhat. Which makes a lot of sense for Oracle. Not
sure about Redhat though. :)
