Earlier this week the Linux 2.6.22 kernel was released, but today is already the first patch in the Linux 2.6.22 series. Greg Kroah-Hartman pushed out the Linux 18.104.22.168 kernel today after a NETFILTER exploit was quickly found. It was also a NETFILTER problem last week that caused the release of the Linux 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 kernels.
