I also did a couple of tests with Josh Boyer's Fedora kernel tree that 
has Fedora patches on top of the development kernel.

That was from an offical Fedora kernel. I believe I got it from the 
nodebug repo, but that kernel should be the same as the one that was 
normally used for rawhide. It is at 
but I don't know how much longer the binaries will stay available in koji.
