That sounds silly when talking about Oracle.

Oracle says:
Which Kernels are supported?

Oracle does not support modified or recompiled kernels. Recompiled
kernels are not supported with or without source modifications.


I doubt there are many "existing Oracle setups" that will risk to lose
all Oracle support by installing a different kernel.

And AFAIK Oracle currently supports not a single distribution that ships
with kernel 2.6.
