On my machine (I also have a 2.6.16):

# find /usr/src/linux-2.6.16/ -perm -666 ! -type l | wc -l
20434

Just to doublecheck I wrote a script which parses the kernel tar:

pax_global_header 52 b mode=666 uid= 0 gid= 0
linux-2.6.17.11/ 0 b mode=777 uid= 0 gid= 0
linux-2.6.17.11/.gitignore 462 b mode=666 uid= 0 gid= 0

linux-2.6.17.11/Documentation/DocBook/.gitignore 35 b mode=666 uid= 0 gid= 0
...

A friend of mine confirmed to also have world writable dirs and files.
