But we have to show the "kernel" way is the cheapest way.
Oh, I get that, and I'm grateful for articles like this one and its predecessor--it should be an excellent tool to help embedded engineers (who are often favorably inclined toward FLOSS in the first place) convince their management chains to work in a more community-compatible way. I was just pointing out that one of Thomas's arguments was maybe not quite as strong as it might appear at first glance; sometimes there are good reasons for sticking with an older kernel for an extended period.
Also note that not all architectures get as much developer attention as i386 and x86_64, nor are they all as unified.
