This is *way* too complex to answer in email. Generally speaking,
this will cause you to pull a new libc6, which can make things break
if you're not updating everything. Stable does *NOT* mix with newer
distros, avoid the temptation of using apt pinning unless you
absolutely know what the ramifications are.
Just use apt-get.org or backports.org instead.
