Why not use the RHEL6 kernel on RHEL5?  That's probably much easier.

My other option is to switch from RHEL 5.x to RHEL 6.x and use the whamcloud 1.8.6-wc1 patchless client (the latest RHEL 6 kernel also supports Interlagos). But I would first like to investigate using a 2.6.37 or later kernel on RHEL 5.
