Well. We'll see. 2.6 is becoming stabler, despite the fact that we're
adding features.

I wouldn't be averse to releasing a 2.6.20.1 which is purely stability
fixes against 2.6.20 if there is demand for it. Anyone who really cares
about stability of kernel.org kernels won't be deploying 2.6.20 within a
few weeks of its release anyway, so by the time they doodle over to
kernel.org they'll find 2.6.20.2 or whatever.
