Implied by Niall's post, but not said explicitly, the UEK has the kernel module for ASMLib built into it, so you don't need the separate package anymore.
oracleasm : Not necessary as it is in UEK already.
oracleasm-support : Still needed. Available on your OL media (or public-yum) or for download from OTN.
oracleasmlib : Still needed. Available from the ULN yum repository or download from OTN. Not on the public-yum or on the DVD as it is not GPL. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/linux/downloads/index-088143.html
Now that OL6 is certified I would expect an number of new packages to appear in the next few weeks, including oracle-validated as well as oracleasmlib package for OL6 etc.
