Yep, turns out there was a problem with the snapshot system. Bastian
has fixed this, so builds should appear in the next 24 hours.

If there are required patches that did not go upstream before
2.6.23-rc2, then this is reasonable. I didn't monitor when all of
these patches went upstream - just that they did. And, since they did,
they should all be there when 2.6.23 releases and before it is
uploaded into Debian/unstable.

Yes, there is a package called linux-source-2.6.18 that installs a
source tarball in /usr/src. Snapshots of this are autobuilt along with
the rest, so it should appear in the next 24 hours as well.
