Keep in mind that this constant kernel revving comes with a cost.  Look
at the bodhi karma each time we try to bring a new kernel version to a
release.  For everything we fix, we likely break something else (like
various sound issues on intel recently).  Upstream isn't perfect, and if
I had to choose between supporting new people, or keeping existing
people unbroken, I'll choose on the side of existing people every time.
