They don't ship new kernels with frequency anywhere near Linux.
Why not admit that this is what you are complaining about, not the lack of an API? The fast moving kernel is the issue that makes it difficult to track, not the lack of an API as you state. The simple solution is to do what many businesses do and develop for kernel releases shipped with distributions. RHEL, Debian, Unbuntu, etc... all ship with specific kernels, there is often little need to track the newest kernel for out of kernel drivers.
