In Centos/RHEL 6.5 do I need to do a yum install kernel-2.6.32-*.openstack.el6.x86_64?

RHEL 6.5 includes the necessary network namespace support; you can read the release notes here. The same should be true of CentOS 6.5.

Also EL 6.4, there were kernels provided within RDO to provide the necessary namespace support. Note support is adequate for OpenStack consumption but not complete due to kernel ABI constraints. For example the ip netns command is not supported
