[1012115.235704] ipmi_devintf: Unknown symbol compat_alloc_user_space


This module and the running kernel are not compatible with each other.

So what you're telling me then, is that a bug needs to be filed against
the stable kernel? I can't see stable being stable when modules won't
load due to a security update. At least I'd assume that a broken kernel
implementation needs to be fixed.


After checking the bts for linux-image-2.6.26-2-amd64, I see a lot of
other packages associated to it, but not a single bug report against
this kernel.


OT: I've found about 4 major bugs with the lenny implementation running
in different server roles. Mainly things that have been patched in
other distributions, but lenny feels abandoned on the bugfixes side.
Although I'm used to breakage based on my 10+ years of running sid, I do
not expect lenny to be broken. The reason why I use stable is, just
that, stability on my servers. After poking around the bts for a bit, I
see very few bug reports against the lenny distro, is that because no
one cares; or is it because no one uses it?


While I do understand and agree with the "no need to fix it if it a'int
broken" mentality, does that mean that lenny does not get
patched/bugfixed... just security updates?


I've contemplated moving to squeeze, but the idea of being a test user
on production machines makes me cringe.
