What a good idea! That's excellent from a quality assurance perspective. I'll upgrade my WHOLE KERNEL, including ALL drivers, just to get ONE driver. Absolutely NO way that might cause problems. There's ZERO chance that new drivers for my existing hardware might be broken in a new kernel, and ZERO chance that the new kernel might be less stable than the one I already have. Of course! I'm so glad you explained this to us.
Please excuse my snarky attitude but frankly, the whole "just upgrade the whole kernel" thing has got to stop. The kernel devs can do what they want, I'm not paying their salaries, but it's 100% clear that users want and need drivers separate from the kernel, and I, for one, am a little tired of people telling me I don't understand my own requirements.
