Pavel, I "love" how you fail to point out that you are responding to a 2
month old thread :(

And that thread was beaten to death, and still you want to revise it,
which is odd to me, perhaps you just don't like stable releases? Given
that you never mark any of the patches for your subsystem for stable
releases, why do you care about how they are maintained?

As everyone has pointed out numerous times in this thread, there are
more testing of stable patches and releases than _EVER_ before in the
history of stable kernels. And if you feel there are ways to do more
testing that we somehow are missing, wonderful, please provide
constructive criticism. If not, and you just want to complain, well, my
killfile can always use a new member...

And as always, you have a choice:
- if you don't like stable kernels, don't run them.
