Obviously I think that Leap should offer full USB 3.1 Gen 2 support prior to 42.3's release roughly 18 months from now. That will be fully 2 years after USB 3.1 Gen 2 devices became available.
How that is achieved is I don't know. Back ports to the 4.4 kernel? Formal support of the early 2017 LTS kernel?
Well your best bet would be to lobby for the backports into 4.4 kernel. That way, you will have the greatest change to get "USB 3.1 Gen 2" (10Gbs, Thunderbolt, etc) into Leap 42.2 / SLE12SP2.
Well, the current SLE kernel has part of that. The upstream for Thunderbolt (Alternate Modes) is just not there for now. Type C as USB ought to work, though.
