I meant to say that this is confusing, at best.

None of this is true and the rpm file dated Aug 11 09:32 per the web page is
actually identical with the rpm I downloaded on Aug 10.
Would you agree that something's wrong here? If you are still working on the fix
then you shouldn't push out new documentation which says otherwise and is
incorrect. If that is an intermediate kernel which should partly fix the problem
I wonder why it is identical with the kernel dated July 30 I got via fou4s on
Aug 10 (md5sum is 2f0b04a5a541dc7e968e34cb673212a0).
Nothing of this fits together. It looks to me like you pushed out some
information too early or someone hosed the replacement of the rpm and put the
old rpm with a new date in place.
