Hello Baptiste, depends on the votes. As far i can see the package 
has 9 votes. It's not that much. I would wait for more votes or discuss
this with the community if another version of the linux kernel in the
official repositories is asked for.

Yep, this would make sense.

It is definitly better to wait for a stable upstream release. Please do
not push snapshots of git branches in community when you can avoid that.

Best regards
