As I understand it, LTS releases are allowed (intended?) to add
support new hardware in the dot-releases.

As you encounter hardware that does not work with a given release of
Ubuntu, by all means, please report it in Launchpad.  It may well be
fixed in the current Ubuntu release first for development/test
purposes.  Conditions allowing, however, those fixes can then be
proposed for -backports to the LTS release.

It's essential, though, that owners of the affect hardware work
through the appropriate Launchpad channels.
