    Agreed, this would make a _lot_ of difference in the time it
    takes to get a new stable kernel really stable.

    Doesn't mean we need to get _all_ our TODO items done in
    2.5. I really don't see what's wrong with doing only a
    few in 2.5 and delaying the rest for 2.7, especially not
    when both 2.5 and 2.7 happen quickly ;)

    regards,
