'git checkout cfe3602' gives you the state of the tree at
6.12-213-gcfe3602 (and to prove it, 'git describe cfe3602' should give you
the same version string).

The most fixed version is no longer the 6.12 series, but the 7.0 series.
It is the master branch, that is: 'git checkout master'.  When I checked
this morning, it was at 7.0-153-g0d5508d (that is, we have had 153 patches
since 7.0 was published, and the current commit id is 0d5508d).
