Parent article: Kernel release status
did you even read what i responded to? it was a suggestion about releasing our own security fixes as an alternative to the so-called 'stable' series
Brad, why don't you and PaXTeam just release an intermediate .x stable kernel patch series to fix
the problems you find?
You could set up a git repository with the fixes you find from which the -stable maintainers could pull, instead of wasting your time and energy on arguing with people over things that have nothing to do with security.
As for real security: I ran the perf_counter exploit through Brad's framework on my pristine, default Ubuntu distribution and it fails right after it killed pulseaudio, so it was only a bit annoying.
