The correct number for Kernel.org's version is, not 2.6.15-3.
The latter uses a debian revision and indicates the version of the
kernel in Debian. While my AMD64 laptop is currently running a 2.6.14
kernel, my i386 desktop is running kernel 2.6.15-4, and upgraded to that
version yesterday morning, replacing version 2.6.15-3, in accordance
with some kind of policy that really minor kernel upgrades are allowed
to keep the same package name and increase the version number. That
policy seems odd though.
