plans for final FC4 kernel update?



Practically speaking I suppose this is a question directly for Dave Jones.

But I'm not picky.

Fedora Core 4 is going to transition to Legacy status pretty much any minute
now. There is, however, kernel-2.6.17-1.2143_FC4 sitting in the
updates/testing area. Presumably this will be really pushed before the
cutoff?

Is there any chance that there might be one more after that? I know that FC4
has been pretty closely tracking the FC5 kernel; it'll probably make the job
for the Legacy people much easier if those are as in-sync as possible.

Byt really I ask because I finally sat down and figured out what's behind my
pet kernel bug, <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189812>.
Turns out it's a recently-solved problem, fixed in 2.6.18-rc1. Man oh man
would it make my life easier for the next six months if the official FC4
kernel included this patch in some way or another. (It's been broken since
2.6.16.)

Just a humble, hopeful request. :)
