That will depend on exactly why you're still running a 2.6.32 kernel from 6 years ago. Remember - the fact it's all the way up to doesn't mean you have all the bugfixes.  It only means you have all the bugfixes that qualified for the -stable side of the fence (which is a small fraction of all the fixes that have happened in the past 6 years).

Hi Valdis,

We were running assuming it's a stable build and my assumption was wrong :(. Should I go ahead with stable 3.18.3 [2015-01-16 ].
