Why are you running debian testing/unstable on production servers?
And you're complaining about security patches? You can't have it both ways: either they remain unpatched, or you have downtime. Those bugs existed long before 2.6.16, that just happens to be the one they're looking at and patching. If they'd called (say) 2.6.8 stable, there would still be those patches. Sure, maybe not the exact same ones, but many the same, and others that have been fixed between 2.6.8 and 2.6.16.
