You can always opt to go for the Rawhide version of the kernel - 
available in source RPM.  There is often a much-more recent version of 
the kernel available for you to tinker with.  Mind you, after installing 
a Red Hat source RPM-based kernel, do a make mrproper, and then copy the 
.config file for the default configuration you wish to support.
