It actually can't and this is why it isn't very useful within Fedora, as we
get big updates, not just minimal security patches. KSplice can't handle
that kind of updates. It can only handle small patches which don't change
any data structures. So the official Fedora kernel updates will never be
suitable to be distributed through KSplice.
