I second.  I beg you to remember that we are actually looking to get
both 3.0.23 and 3.0.24 into woody.  Stable has 3.0.22.

I see significant s390, mips, and alpha fixes.

I think we're waiting for the problem to be fixed by the kernel
maintainer.  We should use a patched 2.4.18 since it seems unlikely to
me that the archive maintainers will allow a new kernel (2.4.19) into
stable point releases.
