I don't think running "vanilla" kernals has ever been an explicitly
endorsed path for Red Hat users. NPTL is just the most visible thing
that's different; there's a lot of little things that have gone into
the RH kernels in the past that weren't in mainstream (I was bitten
by the software raid on-disk format differences in the 7.x line, and
I remember there being some differences between mainline and RH with
some of the autofs stuff).

If you *really* want a newer kernel release for some reason, grab the
latest SRPM from Red Hat, and work through applying the patches to a
newer kernel (or getting the newest version of those particular patches
instead). It's a long process trying to merge everything and get a
working kernel, but it's the most likely route to producing a reliable
system. Or, just stick with what Red Hat ships with releases and their
errata packages. ;-)
