    Is the same way as 2.4.24 will be - i.e. from a -pre kernel point of
    view, last -rc = final.

    The advantage is simple - the maintainer has to evaluate the same set
    of patches once (no increase in work here) and the only additional thing
    (s)he must do is deciding which (-pre and -rc or only -rc) kernels does
    it go in.
