I assume the last number is exclusive ;) I can't see anything wrong. Looks good. For the best part the naming convention is trivial, afterall, its only really the patch order that matters - which is likely why the original lasted so long :) I would maybe suggest making the security patch size that little bit bigger (hell, we have the room) and shrink linux-stable a little bit. This is directly relating to what we spoke about a while ago re: maintaining aging genpatches. This isn't vital though.
