If you look at https://www.kernel.org/category/releases.html
you will see that 3.2.x is LTS with EOL 2016, whereas 3.10.x
is EOL Sept, 2015.  (Obviously 3.0.x is EOL Oct 2013, next
month, so some change is necessary.)

When we moved from 2.6.32 lts to 3.0 lts, it was because gcc header
files needed a minimum kernel above 2.6.34.  I was wondering whether
there was a similar technical reason for the 3.10.x choice over
3.2.x, or whether I can just as easily run a 3.2.x kernel on an
otherwise Plain Jane and current Arch Linux build?
