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.

Cheers for that.
