You quoted this:

Obviously the version numbers involved here (2.6.30) refer to upstream
versions. Whats in the centos kernel is quite different than any
upstream kernel versions. So, try following the instructions as if you
had a >= 2.6.30 version and see if that works.

vdesktop is a module that contains several things, its got kernel
modules for kvm, some kvm userspace library and an old copy of qemu-kvm
modified to use spice. With a recent kernel you don't need anything but
the qemu part.
