As we all eagerly await the release of Slackware 14.0, which judging by current's changelog grows exponentially close, I wondered about the kernel it would release with.
Kernel 3.2.x makes a lot of sense as it became a de facto
LTS kernel which Hutchings committed to maintaining. However, earlier this week, it was announced that 3.4.x is officially getting 2 years of support (https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/8/20/675
Some interesting (to me) additions somewhere between 3.2 and 3.4 are: nfacct & rpfilter matches in netfilter, a new X32 ABI, direct booting by EFI firmware, a new teaming (aka bonding 2.0) network device, btrfs improvements, and support for newer GPUs.
Food for thought...
