According to my records of commits, there were only three post-release
commits to RELENG_6_2, and they were all fixes for security advisories
or errata notices. They were:
FreeBSD-SA-07:02.bind (9 Feb 2007)
FreeBSD-EN-07:02.net and FreeBSD-EN-07:03.rc.d_jail (28 Feb 2007)
FreeBSD-EN-07:05.freebsd-update (15 Mar 2007)
All of these were vetted pretty closely by secteam@ and domain experts
(and usually re@ as well). The only one of these that touched the
kernel was FreeBSD-EN-07:02.net, which backed out an IPv6-related
regression that was introduced late in the 6.2 release cycle. I'm
personally pretty skeptical that this could cause a problem, although
I'm admittedly a little biased, plus there weren't a lot of details in
your email as to what the problem is.
To answer your last question: If your machine runs 6.2-RELEASE, then
RELENG_6_2 should run on it.
