If the kernel itself is the firewall, that's where the problem is.
It's however pointless and off-topic to discuss this here, so let's not
continue to hijack the list -- the frequency of kernel updates isn't an
issue for the OP. Brad's practice however is misguided in itself and also
with besides the point that the original poster was making, and that
deserves a comment.
