well, there's two alternatives:
either you rev the kernel, which, optional or not means the slight
risk of regressions for those who try it (and a significant retesting
effort to ensure regressions are caught in testing, not in release )
OR you figure how to provide the latest drivers or hardware related
subsystems to just those who need it:
Thank you for your very interesting email, it is clarifying. :-)
We (as in SUSE) have worked long on the infrastructure and what's
needed behind the scenes for driver kits, our friends at canonical and
redhat are implementing the last step for a cozy user experience, an
infrastructure to find and register the right driver kits
automatically (Jockey and a driver database).
Please keep us posted when this ends in a driver repo or whatever that we users can use :-)
