Title: Opensuse 12.2 - adopt kernel 3.4

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jedi Beeftrix (jedibeeftrix)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Why? Better Btrfs support:
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTA3OTk Better Intel
graphics support:
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTA2MTI Intel
Medfield support:
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTA2ODQ Is it
possible? Well, 3.3 is due in a weeks time:
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTA2NTY
And three months is the normal release period for the kernel, which
puts it 3.4 at June 10th.
This is before the first opensuse 12.2 release candidate:
Thursday, 24 May 2012: openSUSE 12.2 Beta Thursday, 14 June 2012:
openSUSE 12.2 RC 1

3.4 was nine days late, but at less than three months on average there
is still an excellent chance that 3.4 will arrive before RC1 hits the
servers:

Important btrfs changes will be spliced into the openSUSE kernel
updates, as it is already done for openSUSE 12.1 (ships 3.1.x) which
has received btrfs patches from linux-3.2.x.
Time for a pusback to these repeated requests (that come in like, once
a distro release). The opensuse kernel team will decide if and when and
which kernel version is chosen, and I rather trust their decision than
neckbreaking last-minute updates.

+ consider it a public service. :)
+ p.s. 3.4 released:
