The current stable 2.6 kernel is 220.127.116.11
on May 9. It adds
four security patches, all of which apply to the SCTP code. Previously, 18.104.22.168
was released on
May 5 with a patch for an smbfs problem which could enable a process
to escape a chroot environment.
The current 2.6 prepatch remains 2.6.17-rc3. A few hundred patches
have been merged into the mainline git repository since -rc3 was released;
they are mostly fixes, but there is also a set of splice()
improvements and the ability add attribute groups to class_device
entries at registration time.
There have been no -mm releases over the last week.
