There are two exceptions though. The SLE12SP2 Beta1 sources landed

Is there any chance that 42.2 will get a 4.6 or newer kernel?

The key feature for me is much better USB 3.1 support. USB 3.1 has
been around for a while now, so it seems like something that should be
better supported in Leap 42.2.

ps: I know 4.4 is a LTS kernel, I just don't when the next LTS kernel
may come along. Sometime this summer would not be a surprise:

Regarding LTS kernel: Word at the last linux.conf in January was
that the first kernel-release per year (most likely in January)
will be a LTS release.

This was the result of a debate on LTS release timing.

Ergo for 2016, Kernel 4.4 is LTS.

The point of debate should be: What feature / update will
be included in the dot-releases (4.4.x).

If you want USB 3.1 support, lobby for a backport of that
feature into the LTS kernel.

(I'd like to see the missing skylake bits, but that is another point)
