Unless a) it introduces a new longest-build path, or b) requires dubious patches that
could introduce regressions, IMO folding an external kernel into generic is
always a good thing: less flavours to deal with, less config churn (a separate
kernel requires a separate config/annotation adjustment when we move to a new
major kernel version), more hw supported out of generic, etc.
