Any caveats to backporting latest maverick kernel to Lucid?

I subscribe to bugs.launchpad for bug #528457 (gpu hung drm i915 intel). I recently received a report from there that backporting the most recent maverick kernel, to lucid 10.04 fixed this bug. I would like to try this. Is this unwise for any reason?  Can I undo it easily if it doesn't perform as expected?
