It is worth noting that those distributors have not been doing a whole lot of complaining about how security fixes are handled now. Instead, the complaining has come, primarily, from the maintainers of the out-of-tree grsecurity project which, from a suitably cynical point of view, could be seen to benefit from raising the profile of Linux kernel security problems.
Given the actions of those people when they posted here, I don't think that viewpoint requires any great degree of cynicism. It seems quite accurate.
