I occasionally see mirrors that appear to be that far out of date. Though
the way it happens is if the kernel.org mirrors are lagging (maybe some other
distro had an update), I'll use the rawhide mirrors web page and go looking
for other mirrors that appear to be up to date and then use them for rsyncing
for a while and then go back to mirrorsX.kernel.org. I suspect that there
are some that update weekly based on the lag I see.
