* RPM is already using the new method.
* Upgrading with yum has never been supported. Anaconda has no problems on
upgrades with the new checksum method because the new RPM is used to
process the upgrade.
* Even Anaconda upgrades are not supported in RHEL, you have to run the
installer with "linux upgrade" (or "linux upgradeany" if you're trying to
upgrade from Fedora or something equally wacky) to even enable them. The
standard procedure to migrate to a new RHEL is a reinstall, usually on new
hardware.
