Uhm, last time I checked, sys-kernel/vanilla-sources was just that -
vanilla sources handled by the package manager.

If you check what is in portage currently, there are no 2.6.15-rc or
even _any_ version that have a -rX, so he either used the
gentoo-sources, or he used which had a bug that was fixed in
2.6.16-rc4 (assuming, as there are no 2.6.16-r4 on No way
to know if he don't specify the correct version, or try the same version
directly from (which would probably give the same results if
he really did use vanilla-sources).

Maybe, but did you file a bug ? No reason for random ranting if you had
issues with their patched kernel. I can name many other distribution
kernels, and some ones that had issues, but then it usually
was my own fault if it stayed an issue.
