As someone pointed out they had, IF..... = they hadn't.

Then when you're on holidays, some twit will run yum update or the
equivelant in the office, and your poser phone will get jingle :-).
As you rebuild, be careful how you tackle the version of kernel headers
you use. Just to give an illustration, LFS was building trying to go to
kernel 22.214.171.124 with kernel headers from 126.96.36.199 - both considered
"stable". DRI would not work. It was traced to drm.h where a piece of
code called for simply didn't exist in the earlier headers. Kernel
headers have changed, much more so in recent kernels.
