Hi all

i am currently upgrading a lustre 2.10.3 to 2.12.4 on CentOS 7.7 and I 
am unsure if I should use the patchless or patched server version. what 
is the advantage of still using the patched server version over using 
the patchless variant? From an linux sysadmin point of view I prefer to 
use an unpatched kernel and it would seem unnecessary to still maintain 
a patched variant if they both worked the same in the end.
