I have no doubt that Andy will have tested the kernel changes.
The question is how does that new kernel interoperate with the rest of
the rootfs. For instance, (and people will remember this one well), are
the modules packaged correctly into the rootfs. Has the userspace been
updated to match changing /sys file locations?
There's more to keeping a distribution consistent than just testing one
item in isolation ...
