I am sure that you will be able to get the newer kernels from the testing branch of your repo. Note that if you have a support contract, they will most likely not bother about giving you support anymore so it is a waste of the money that you have paid. Maybe see with support if there is a supported kernel in the 3* range.
But generally speaking, by enabling the testing or unstable repo and doing an update will get you the more recent stuff, but I would recommend against it if you provide customers with service level agreements.
