In particular by model:

*  3.10 for XO-1,
*  3.10 for XO-1.5,
*  3.0 for XO-1.75, and;
*  3.5 for XO-4.

There have also been other new gotchas as Fedora has taken on new
features of newer kernels; like SO_REUSEPORT for Avahi.

At the moment, I've no plans to rebase; but I'm willing to adopt any
kernel trees that boot and run on the XO laptop models, and answer any
interesting questions from kernel developers trying a rebase.
