For those who are particularly concerned about breakage due to kernel
upgrades, they might be interested in my AUR packages for versioned kernel


These repackage the Arch kernels so that multiple versions can be installed
simultaneously, so that after an upgrade the previous version is still

Usually having the regular and LTS kernels is sufficient to ensure at least
one boots or doesn't have some regression that's appeared in the other, but
if you need more than that, versioned kernel installs might be useful.
