    Well, there's user-space and user-space. A part of the user space is
    kernel/system oriented, like fsck.* or util-linux (mount, chattr!)
    configuration tools or user-space parts of drivers, and there's a part
    of user-space that is unrelated.

    If the kernel related stuff (which usually is in /sbin) needs to be
    updated, that's fine even for a "stable" kernel. If the new
    reiserfs-progs fix a problem of an older version, then by all means go
    fix and update Documentation/Changes. There could be a new "recommended"
    column though which lists non-critical version updates.
