    That's a tradeoff. You either version the headers just like I did, meaning
    that a given version corresponds to a given kernel, but that means you can't
    release before all of the archs are fully updated (and not relying on a
    single person to do all of the updates is one of the points of the exercise;
    and with more people, one can have delays) or you're forced to figure out
    some other way to version the headers.

    Judge others by their intentions and yourself by your results.
