Most of the security fixes weren't `immediate must-install'. A goodly number related to single drivers or obscure new protocols: SMB/CIFS, SCTP...

... I mean, the SCTP code is, what, a kernel release old? Thus, it has bugs; some of which may be remotely exploitable (by the nature of network protocol code). How terribly shocking.
