The current stable 2.6 kernel is 126.96.36.199
on July 6. It
contains a single fix for a locally-exploitable vulnerability in the
system call. 188.8.131.52
was also released with
the same fix.
The current 2.6 prepatch remains 2.6.18-rc1.
Almost 200 patches have gone into the mainline since -rc1 was released;
they are almost all fixes, but the "TCP Compound" congestion control
algorithm was also removed due to doubts about the code's origin.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.18-rc1-mm1. Recent changes
to -mm include a vast number of new warnings for unchecked return values, a
set of software suspend updates, and a new version of the vectored I/O operation patch
