If you need to run the absolute latest kernel, and care about stability, then you need to set up a test environment and test each release before putting it into production. This is true no matter what pre-release testing procedure is built into the kernel release cycle - chances are no kernel developer has your production environment as a desktop machine!
If you're lazy, you wait for a kernel to age, like a fine wine.
Or you can do what most people do, and use the kernel that comes with your distribution.
