Excellent idea. However, if the distro vendors did this, they'd probably do it for their stable enterprise kernels, as those are the kernels their paying customers use (and also kernels that change slowly enough that this sort of fine tooth-combing is possible). I wish this sort of thing was possible to fund with the raging high-speed chaos that is upstream kernels but I have a feeling that it isn't :/ still, hopefully if this were done *some* of the holes that were found in distro kernels might still be applicable upstream. (disclaimer: I have no input into funding decisions anywhere at all nor ever have had. This is purest speculation.)
