    FWIW, I have been running 2.2.5 on my big production db/web/file/mail
    server for (checks) 39 days without kernel problems. Userland is another

    I'm also running 2.2.7 without problems on several systems. 2.2.8 and
    above seem to be a bad idea to have on production systems at this point.
