We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the kernel. There's a long list of fixes, not the least of which is the data corruption fix from Linus and some security fixes:

eaca4fd8: handle ext3 directory corruption better (CVE-2006-6053)
fe89cf78: corrupted cramfs filesystems cause kernel oops (CVE-2006-5823)
8d312ae1: ext2: skip pages past number of blocks in ext2_find_entry (CVE-2006-6054)
54e25b04: VM: Fix nasty and subtle race in shared mmap'ed page writeback
e26353af: Fix incorrect user space access locking in mincore() (CVE-2006-4814)

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.
