Hmm, I cannot update my kernel every two weeks. But I understand your 

Up to now all patches from -rc's have been compatible with the current 
stable kernel version, but this time it doesn't even compile anymore...

I won't be able to test my latest changes, without undoing the recent 
rc-compatibility changes.

I don't know if it will be a problem for the other developers, but for me 
it is one.

Can you suggest me something handy for getting along with it, without 
going to 2.6.VV-rcX ? (VV > my current kernel-version)?
