I agree. We need to figure out how to support driver package
maintainers well inside the build service. This is especially true
for SLE, where service packs also make things complicated.

Are there any elegant solutions to this problem?

I do not see why you would want to build drivers against the older
kernels (of the same distribution) with security problems.

Because if depending on the security issue (e.g. local root exploit)
you may prefer a somehow 'approved' kernel, e.g. approved for some
weird special application, over the latest and most secure kernel.

Also you want to provide the driver for the GA kernel (so you can
install the machine) and for the current security kernel (so you can
then update to that one).

I think it's a valid request.
