You seem to be saying that the current development model is unacceptable
for users for whom older kernel work just fine, and the main risk in
upgrading is regression. But the new development model is clearly
needed for those users whose needs are not met by the old kernel, say
due to unacceptable soft RT performance or unsupported hardware.

But it's wrong to try to evenly balance the needs of these two classes
of users, because the first class has another option - they can stick
with the old kernel that works for them. The second class of users has
no other option, so their needs should be given greater weight.
