Not to nit-pick, but running rpm -Va will check *all* packages; that's what 
the -a switch does.  Same for rpm -qa listing all packages.  Of course, you 
can also do:

rpm -qa kernel*

to see all packages that begin with "kernel".  If you want to verify only 
certain packages with rpm, run:

rpm -V package1 package2 package3

BTW:  rpm -Va will take a long time to run.
