I guess that would be why :)

That's probably actually a patched 2.6.6 - from what I understand of
how Red Hat works, the version number is the number of the *oldest*
part of the code, so that quite possibly has a lot of backported
fixes. When I said 2.6 was out of support, I meant from;
Red Hat supports stuff for a lot longer.

So, yeah, perfectly good reason for sticking with 2.6. For now. :)
