Note that the RHEL kernel version number is basically a complete
fabrication; it's the version that the kernel was forked from, something
like 30% of all commits are backported for each new upstream release,
without changing the RHEL-kernel version number.

Which means that all the Cake out-of-tree kernel version compatibility
stuff is not going to work, because that works based on the kernel
version number...

It's in Fedora: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/flent - should be
fairly straight-forward to add it to EPEL as well, but thus far no one
has requested it... :)

netperf is blocked on licensing: 

Since the re-licensing there may be a chance, but not sure what the
procedure is when there's not a release with the new license.

As for irtt, that should be pretty straight-forward to package.
