Definitely.  Some of those changes were to fix reliability issues, so we
must get the fixes into 3.0-stable, and some others are just nice to have.

As I mentioned in here earlier, I'd like to get most stuff that we
committed into Owl-current so far, into 3.0-stable.  About the only
major exception is the OpenSSL update and some of its related changes.

So I literally mean "exactly the same" as it relates to the kernel -
including ping sockets.  The only 3.0-stable specific work to do on this
update is editing of CHANGES-3.0-stable.
