Parent article: A survey on kernel quality
I don't have direct experience with any 2.6 bugs (unless you count Ubuntu's failure to boot from HD using 2.6 due to a missing device node in the ramdisk, IIRC, but I've been blaming that on Ubuntu). However, I am aware of several that came up at work, all with Red Hat's 2.6.9 kernel and all (except maybe the most recent) fixed in the same version AFAIK. That particular use case doesn't really fit the survey, however; its "fixed in" option starts at 2.6.10, and I have no clue when/how the RH fixes might have gotten submitted "upstream."
Just another ill-fitting data point...
