Ok, but what's different with speakup then?

I think I've tried that, but may be my mistake was that I expected it to apply cleanly.

You would build them from 4.10 sources.
But yeah, that's a valid concern.
Personally, I want to use the RedHat's Kernel, cause - who knows what
did they change and how my system will behave with a generic kernel.
So, probably the best will be to copy the staging directory from the
generic sources into RedHat's sources, and then build and install the
whole thing, but that's 
 really too much, as you said.
 Actually, I think that exact thing was suggested to me, when I first
 hit the absence  of speakup in Fedora.

Best wishes,
