The specific version of each supported kernel is in lustre/ChangeLog.
It reports " (SLES 10)" as the supported SLES kernel,
so it shouldn't be very different than the one you have, but one never
knows what SLES is up to (they bumped SLES 11 from 2.6.27 to 2.6.32 for SP1).

If you need to make any serious patch changes, you should file a bugzilla
and/or Jira bug with the updates using a clear topic like "Updated ldiskfs
patches for SLES 10" so that others don't need to do this
work again.
