The origin of the gpm package is not Planet CCRMA, it is an original
Fedora Core package (and there are no updates from Fedora Core that I
know of). Maybe you should report this problem to the Fedora Core
bugzilla gub tracking system. 

I try very hard to not override original RedHat/Fedora packages. 

How do you know it does not have the patch? Have you looked at the

I don't know about this one without trying it out myself. It depends on
whether the kernel module was compiled successfully or not, and what
mechanism is being used to load it into the kernel (meaning, the kernel
will not load it by itself, something else must be loading it - when
that happens, do you get an error message?).
