They don't include the very last remap (or something like that)
vulnerability. I don't think RH has released an update for that either.
Other than that, yes they should be fine.

I'll do. Funny you mention this. This past few days I've been working on
an Athlon64 machine after installing FC1 for x86_64. And I found out
that (obvious when you think about it) the low latency patches and the
preempt patches do not exist in x86_64 versions. So no low latency
unless you build 2.6.x...

To make a long story short I have a 2.6.4 + bk2 kernel x86_64 (based on
the unofficial packages at http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/) with
preempt enabled and the lsm patch. With that I was able to run jack as a
non root user with realtime privileges (same as with the capabilities
patch in 2.4.x). 

But I have been unsuccessful so far in rebuilding the same source rpms
under redhat 9... still trying.
