Partly 2.6.1 had a lot fewer commits to subsequent releases. Commit counts for the first 10 are:

2.6.1 680
2.6.2 1252
2.6.3 1431
2.6.4 1407
2.6.5 1571
2.6.6 2020
2.6.7 2796
2.6.8 2650
2.6.9 4148
2.6.10 4510

and partly because Andrew Morton was getting a lot of patches attributed that didn't really belong to him. The counts for akpm patches in that first 10 are:

2.6.1 201
2.6.2 477
2.6.3 294
2.6.4 415
2.6.5 345
2.6.6 618
2.6.7 764
2.6.8 191
2.6.9 102
2.6.10 143

So about 25% of 2.6.1 and 2.6.2, and much less in the later releases.
(A quick look shows that the first few releases have several patches with
>>>> From: NeilBrown <neilb@cse.unsw.edu.au>
in the comment, but:
>>>> Author: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org>
so I figure I should be in the exclusive "41-club" too!!)
