Can Red Hat re-base driver versions in older minor product releases?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

Customers who standardise internal builds on specific older minor releases of RHEL can experience issues which are resolved with later upstream/third-party drivers. Is it possible for Red Hat to re-base (update to newer upstream releases wholesale) driver versions in older minor product releases so that the customer can continue to deploy the older kernel in their standard build? For example, this scenario has been experienced with the CCISS driver.
