At one point (pre Fedora 8), packages containing "addon" kernel modules were permitted. This is no longer the case. Fedora strongly encourages kernel module packagers to submit their code into the upstream kernel tree.

Existing kernel module packages must be removed (or merged into the main kernel package) before Fedora 9.

The reference documentation on how to package kernel modules in the "kmod" style has been preserved here .
