2.6.22 isn't changing anything as tricky as 2.6.21 changed. It's not going to be a stability kernel, in the sense of being focused on solidifying things without introducing anything new or substantially different, but it's probably going to go better than 2.6.21, just due to not undermining so many long-time assumptions.
I think the people who want a really stable kernel really do best by getting the first kernel that supports everything they want, waiting for other people to hit the problems (or waiting for their system vendor to hit the problems) and then sticking with that kernel, with only -stable-quality patches afterward until they get a newer system that needs a newer kernel.
