Description of problem:
I would appreciate bundling of the kernel-sourcecode rpm package in
the RHEL4 distro. I am aware I could produce this myself with the
kernel src.rpm, but having it available is much easier for customers
willing to compile certain modules (e.g. bcm5700).

In RHEL3 a kernel-source rpm was also provided.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
n.a.
    

Actual Results:  kernel-sourcecode rpm is not built and missing in the
distro

See RHEL4 beta2 release notes for description of kernel packaging changes:

ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/beta/nahant-beta2/en/AS/i386/RELEASE-NOTES-en

Note that it's not necessary to have kernel-sourcecode for compiling
external modules (and, in fact, just using kernel-sourcecode for that
won't work without more effort than is necessary.)
