Seems like the opposite of the whole LTS idea. Fix-by-upgrade is not a
solution. Newer release could introduce other bugs and then what?
Upgrade to even newer version? Not to mention that LTS releases are
rare, so there might be no newer LTS version to upgrade to.

IMO bugs should be fixed in LTS kernels and/or newer kernels should be
backported to LTS releases.
