Good Stuff, wouldn't you apply it? Even if it meant upgrading to W/10 from W/XP?
If you are willing to run risks there are other repositories with later kernels
and of course the bleeding edge made for today ones that are running modes that
aren't tested, haven't been approved by Linus yes etc etc.
The only 'surprises' I've found with later kernels is they no longer work
my laptop video card, e.g. my trusty
[AMD/ATI] RS690M [Radeon Xpress 1200/1250/1270]
the screen blinks on and off with anything after 3.15 (sigh).
Bottom like, use multiversion to keep your current kernel when you try the new.
If you have any problem, just select advanced options on the boot screen and
choose your old-kernel, simple as that.
