I preferred the odd/even system we had before 2.6. I also gave up on reporting kernel bugs. Usually I am the only person with that bug and hardware configuration and nobody will fix it. This is not specific to the kernel though. I think I never got any of the bugs which I reported to fedora, red hat or gnome fixed. Two other things: is the kernel bugzilla used at all? are there any tests like unit tests to catch regressions for the kernel? both are pretty standard for any other open source project nowadays.
