Excuse me? 2.2 is the only released kernel. I expect the
current kernel to get new drivers, at least until a newer
kernel is released.

This is meaningless. The 2.2 kernel is CURRENT. It is the
newest kernel that is released. The 2.3 kernels are not released
yet. As far as I am concerned the clock on 2.2 age doesn't
start until 2.4 is released. So 2.2 is 0 years old.
