It also drops a spec file into /usr/src/redhat/SPECS.
It has instructions on how to build the package. If you want to
"prepare" the package (extract the sources and patch them), run
rpmbuild -bp /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel*
The "prepared" source will end in /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel*
(-bc to compile, -bb to generate a rpm package)
