So is there a reason why stable couldn't become some hybrid-form union of

- really critical issues (data corruption, boot issues, severe security
issues) taken from bleeding edge upstream
- [reviewed] cherry-picks of functional fixes from major distro kernels
(based on that very -stable release), as that's apparently what people
are hitting in the real world with that particular kernel
