Thanks for the suggestions and the reminder of how slow
NAND can be.  I've added a USB stick for swap and yum
caching and another for the kernel git and compile.

I've been able to check out the kernel sources and am
about to try the configure and compile.  I think I
may not even need to install the built kernel, just
point the linuxwacom build to the kernel source dir

Looks promising so far...
