I can't claim to have any detailed knowledge of that, no.

That's true. I guess my lack of trust in vendor kernels is part being
bitten by them in the past where my own custom build vanilla kernels have
worked fine, and part the fear of getting locked-in to some vendor
specific feature... Perhaps things are different these days and I should
reevaluate my view on vendor kernels - but that's why I haven't been
trusting them.
