Where to get newer RHEL 7 kernel mentioned on bugzilla.redhat.com (for CentOS)

Pavel asked:

I am using Centos 7.4 and have encountered a bug, which I found a solution for: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1502601

The problem is, solution mentions that bug is fixed in

and my CentOS 7.4 has kernel-3.10.0-693 and will yum yum updateupdate only to newer kernel-3.10.0-693 version.

Is it possible to get kernel-3.10.0-832.el7 (or newer) without Red Hat subscription?

My answer:

You won’t see this particular kernel version outside of Red Hat. It was an internal kernel build and not distributed to the public.

As you can see, this bug is not yet marked as fixed. It is clear from the comments that Red Hat is still testing it internally.

If you need this fix urgently, you’ll need a Red Hat subscription and to open a support case with Red Hat. Otherwise, you can wait for the fix to be released, at which time it will also become available for CentOS.
