3.0 is purely about renumbering, it is not a major release in the sense
that there is any major difference in the development cycle, code etc.
It won't be any different to the 2.6.39,38,etc development cycles.

When 3.0 comes out you should consider switching to it to be exactly as
risky as switching to 2.6.40 would have been and you should consider the
3.0-rc releases the same as you would have treated 2.6.40-rc.
