Been running 3.10 since 3.9 went EOL. Had no problems with either release (albeit on my old hardware).

I would suppose that the point of LTS is that it's supported with security patches? So while problems, with regards to specific hardware, which were fixed in later releases, can persist, for many, it's usually a "safer" kernel to use than the latest stable. I would much rather run either a stable or an LTS kernel though than an EOL'd kernel such as 3.8 or 3.9. Thus my preference would be for 3.10.

Backports to LTS kernels are not restricted to security patches. That's the main issue with the upstream release engineering.

Well security patches and bug fixes.

Do you guys think that the new radeon dpm code (targeting 3.11) could be included in future releases of the 3.10 branch? Or is it a far too big change to backport?

I think that's a question that is more appropriate to ask the kernel developers, since they would be doing the work, and would know better than we would.

Matt

Looks like 3.10.x got LTS status, but more importantly fixes the power issue
on resume with some Intel machines. So, we're bumping the kernel to 3.10.5,
and will stick with that series for the release. A few more things to look at
before calling this a beta, but it's pretty close. Enjoy!
Thanks Patrick!
