2.6.17 hasn't been released yet.  It's still in release candidate mode.

Rawhide kernels aren't really 2.6.16 though.  They're 2.6.16 + patches
from the 2.6.17 git tree.  See today's rawhide report:

kernel-2.6.16-1.2134_FC6

The reason the RPM version is still .16 is because you still want to be
able to upgrade to 2.6.17 when it comes out.
