2.6.25 is a stable kernel, just as 2.6.24 was and 2.6.26 will be. The
old 'odd number development' stuff would have meant development would be
in 2.7.x kernels, but that hasn't been used for years.
Development kernels are now 2.6.26-rcX which become 2.6.26, and any
small fixes become 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, etc.
