I'm not worried about kernels per se. I'm thinking rather about a situations where the Intel gr. stack requires 3.9.5, I will install it (its packages), and then I will slap the stack on the face by booting into 3.10 Anyway, the requirement of 3.9 seems like a bug (already acknowledged), by the looks of it... Seems sensible. Otherwise Intel wouldn't be better than the pitiful AMD with their Xorg support policy. Sorry for bringing AMD up. Makes me sick too
