At this point we've pretty much made up our minds that a CentOS/ARM
build wont be a 2.6.18 kernel to match the CentOS-6/x86* platform; its
going to need to target a 3.8 or newer kernel, hopefully we can get 3.10
as LTS and rebase over to that by the end of this year ( i.e LTS at
kernel.org ). Also we are more focused on the A15/A9 ARM's and not
really looking to go back to v5 etc, that platform just isnt suiteable
for CentOS as a target.
