Please correct me if I have misunderstood.  It was my impression that
the odd numbered kernel sub-versions eg., 2.1, 2.3, 2.5 are/were
testing/unstable.  When they are ready for prime time, they are
promoted.  Thus 2.1 became 2.2, 2.3 became 2.4, and the current working
version 2.5 will become 2.6 when ready for release.  Is there any reason
to thinks that there are anything more than minor bugs in 2.4.x?
