I'm going to start looking at what's in 3.18 and start porting changes
to 3.14 and earlier. I've only been updating the stable kernels to pull
in the mainline stable updates. I haven't reverted anything (unless
mainline stable caused things to be obsolete), nor have I added any

BTW, I'm going to start with 3.18-rt1 and see what's been added to the
other -rt updates. If there's something I need that was added to
3.18-rt1 can you let me know. That is, if it wasn't marked with a
stable-rt tag. My scripts will find those.
