Description of problem:
In RHN, there is no possibility to mark packages that should never be updated.
For example, I am running a system with a custom-built kernel that should not be
updated via RHN.
Now, of course, the RHN pages show this system as having "critical updates"
available. I could not find a way to turn that off.

It would be nice to have some kind of "skip list" in the system preferences
where one could mark certain packages as irrelevant for updates, although they
are installed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to RHN
2. Look at the "My RedHat Network" page


Actual Results:  Some systems are shown as having "critical updates available",
although not all updates apply to these systems
