Thanks Adams and the rest, so all in all it's a matter of outdated
information of kernel linux isn't it?
in my opinion it is wrong understanding
mainline does not imply release candidate
this is usually marked iwth rc or dev suffixes
there is even a ubuntu kernel called "mainline"
in this context it means "unmodified without distro patches"
