It contains one patch, which is already in the -bk tree, and came from
the security team (hence the lack of the longer review cycle).

It's available now in the normal places:
which is a patch against the release. If consensus arrives
that this patch should be against the 2.6.11 tree, it will be done that
way in the future.

I think you need both x.y.z=>x.y.z.N and x.y.z.N-1=>x.y.z.N patches. My systems which are following the -stable will just need the most recent, but doing x.y.z-1=>x.y.z.N gets really ugly for higher values of N.

It can be automated, it's just two (presumably tiny) patchsets per release.
