Kernel bugs in 2.2.x

I've just read from http://geocrawler.com/lists/3/Linux/35/150/3977992
Alan Cox admitted that there are faults in 2.2.x VM, that would affect
transaction at high load.

I'm developing a database server on Debian which is presently upgraded to
woody, and the kernel is 2.2.x. The result of this development project
would affect my company's impression on Linux as a whole. Had it failed,
my company would forget adopting Linux forever.

Since it's too late to rollback to slink, can I just recompile the
2.0.3.x kernel on this already-upgraded-server and left the packages in
woody distribution untouch?

Please kindly advise. Your advise would save the future of Linux here.
