I do _sometimes_ find patches for 2.6.16 on linux-kernel.
I'm regularly going through the patches that have been applied to 
-stable.

AFAIK Greg and Chris only apply patches to -stable that were explicitely

It would therefore be good, if you could send such patches explicitely 
to stable kernel org
