I was wondering the same thing...  When they abandoned the even/odd
numbering system I lost track of the kernel revision taxonomy.

Sure.  Keeping up with kernel changes these days is challenging for all

a doc I missed?

Thanks for this information, Paul.  I'll experiment with 2.6.11 and
2.6.12 and see if one of them solves my problems.
