[lustre-discuss] Building RPMs for 2.5.3 on CentOS-7.2

I want to build RPMS for 2.5.3 on CentOS-7.2 (the other option would be 
to use 2.8.0, but since we don't need the news in 2.8.0, and since I've 
heard 2.5.3 would be more stable I opted to go for 2.5.3).

Found the link


describing the process under CentOS-6.4, but I do get a bit hesitant 
over this procedure when I reach the kernel-patching-part.

Is it in general a bad idea to build 2.5.3 on 7.2? Hints on proceeding?

Do prebuilt RPMs exist (would make life easier)?

Since we only require 7.2 on the clients, would it be an option to use 
2.5.3 on CentOS-6.5 on the servers, and 2.8.0 on CentOS-7.2 on the clients?

Regards, and thanks!
