Yep. And 2.1.x is gradually stabilising now. Getting the TCP fixed is the
next big step. At that point most kernel, fs and network core code is stable.

Erm.. a lot of people definitely care about that, don't insult folks. You
can also DIY ..

Linus has already announced the first stage of freezing stuff. Im no longer
letting people change visible network API's and various "aimed for 2.1.x"
features are now "aimed at 2.3.x, disabled".
