As I understand the spec, this will not become the default kernel. We
will have to find a way to maitain userland tools (kvm, drbd,
redhat-cluster-suite & co) for both kernels? It may be a good start to
push that in a PPA (with for example access for kernel + server teams)
instead of -proposed.

As a side note, will there be an installer based on that new kenerl?
Most of the problem with servers needing newer kernels are "Oups, I
don't see my disk", not "I have no sound".
