You should determine who at IBM is in direct contact with the Red Hat
Technical Account Manager here, and make these requirements known. While
more fitting for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, it certainly can't hurt.

Install the kernel-2.6.*.src.rpm then modify the *.config files for the
kernels you are interested in. Then in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS run:

# rpmbuild -ba kernel.spec

You will have a nice shiny new (custom) kernel with the additional
modules you desire.
