On that topic, I’m not sure it’s a good idea to use the long-lived branch for
TW. Not just because of kernel compatibility problems but also because the
short-lived branch tends to get fixes and changes/improvements earlier.
To give a current example: mpv with the Vulkan renderer backend can very
easily stall the entire system due to driver bugs that are not present in the
short-lived branch. Also, the CUDA toolkit currently does not work with the
long-lived branch, but requires a newer version.
