For reference, it was discussed there:


>From what I remember, essentially, quite a few people were against
officially supporting another kernel, particularly since the feature

kept replying he would take care of everything himself and that there
would be no interference.

You make it sound like that package would differ very little from our
current linux package and require little additional maintenance; it
really seems fine to me to bring it to [community].
