the kernel-sec team is already aware of these issues [1].  filing a bug
may be useful to increase visibility, and to provide another place to
discuss the problem; but not really necessary.

i believe kernel migration is a manual process (not entirely sure), and
there are already plenty of RC bugs on the kernel, so 2.6.30 isn't
migrating any time soon.

i hope the idea is to stick with the lenny kernels for the time being
since they are getting reasonably quick security updates (but, again,
i'm not sure if this is the plan or not).
