Googling for the topic I found https://blogs.oracle.com/wim/entry/introducing_the_oracle_linux_playground.
I can't find a reference to it on https://blogs.oracle.com/linux or other places.
Do you check people's blogs or how did you find out about it?

We do absolutely no testing on the playground kernels. That only happens once we merge stable trees back into our production kernels. I'm using the playground kernel for my btrfs-based testing, but that's about it right now.
Anyone try the kernel from the playground yet? Some of the issues I can into below:
We are also not going to do any support/development on the playground kernels, which is why we don't accept bugs either. These kernels are really for bleeding edge testing and they're not guaranteed to work with any of the OL6 userspace (as you've discovered).
But, I'm happy that someone outside of Oracle is playing with them too!
Thanks for the feeback and we fixed cgroup config in the latest/later kernel builds.

I could no longer get cgroups mounted via the service cgconfig. Kept giving an error about not being able to parse /etc/cgconfig.conf. If I disabled the service and manually mounted the control group filesystem via mount I could get the file system mounted.
