Humm... I'd guess you update /because/ there are unfixed bugs in the
vanilla version, so... ;-)

OTOH, I was burned some time back the other way around: On my x86_64 the
kernel wouldn't boot. So (on the suggestion of LKML) I went and tried a
bisection search for the patch which broke the kernel... but it was Fedora
optimizing the kernel for size, which Linus' configuration didn't do. Lots
of wasted time there.
