Well the problem with 2.6.22 in Fedora Core 6 is that it will bring
some changes...
Actually eth1394.ko and libdc1394(-1) applications that are not
currently compatible with libdc1394-2 (with support for the new
firewire juju stack) will enter in regression...
Whereas users can possibly be aware of thoses regressions in Fedora 7,
some can be surprised of that in Fedora Core 6...

I don't mean we need to hold kernel update, but how can we prevent
thoses issues ?
