With the number of experimental patches in mm-sources (it is, more or 
less, a testing ground for things that may or may not eventually make it 
into the main 2.6 kernel), whether or not it's based on an RC kernel has 
very little to do with features or stability - consider mm-sources as 
more of a permanent beta kernel.  If you're worried about 2.6.4-mm1 
being more stable than 2.6.5_rc2-mm4, you're better off not using 
mm-sources at all.
