The definition of "stable kernel" has changed. The latest kernel release in an even-numbered series is not the "stable kernel" anymore. Now that releases which just fix bugs (e.g. security holes) and releases which add features have been thoroughly conflated, that's the way it's gotta be. The latest kernel release from your disto or hardware vendor is the "stable kernel" now. Presumably it's an older kernel with backported bugfixes.
