While Ed was a bit harsh he is correct. Red Hat is not the one to
contact. They no longer support any RH Linux version 9.0 or below. All
are considered "end of life" products.
Your best (only?) bet is to go to the Fedora Legacy site
(http://www.fedoralegacy.org) and see if you can contact someone that
might be interested in helping you. Understand though that the chances
are slim that you will succeed in getting the kernel upgraded (unless
you do it yourself). Most "support" through Fedora Legacy is for bug and
security fixes for the smaller packages. But you might find some one
capable of giving you pointers and a helping hand.
Good luck anyway.

Why would Red Hat want to do this? They haven't issued any errata for
7.3 in over a year, and they wouldn't release a new kernel without doing
regression testing. That's a lot of work for something that's been
unsupported for over a year. To be blunt, give it up and upgrade.
If you needed this added to a Fedora Core or RHEL kernel, that would be
a different story...
