Hell, no! This was how openSUSE 13.2 (IIRC the number) ended up almost
unsupported. The support for the kernel was really, really bad. And 4.9
won't be an LTS kernel too, AFAIK.
I thought Greg wanted to make 4.9 an LTS:
Not sure whether he changed his mind since then. kernel.org
doesn't declare 4.9 as LTS yet.
Neither he declared 4.9 to be LTS yet. (It still can be so.)
And, in the above, I didn't mean to stick with
4.9, but referred it as
the latest LTS kernel. So, read it as -
B) fork an own branch at the next LTS before 42.3 release
OK. Not that bad in that case, but still not perfect.
It'll be in a similar situation like Leap 42.1
which has 4.1.x-based
kernel. It's less pain than openSUSE 13.2, while its support status
is still far worse than Leap 42.2.
Yes, I still prefer 4.4 -- I am aware we can lose users because of too
