OK, I realize I'm late. Apologies in advance for that.

I don't see how patches 3, 16, and 17 really fit into the "stable"
rules. None of them:

"... fix a problem that causes a build error (but not for things
marked CONFIG_BROKEN), an oops, a hang, data corruption, a real
security issue, or some "oh, that's not good" issue. In short,
something critical."

So, are we being a bit more lax on the requirements for the
-stable kernels and I missed the memo, or?
