Not just app developers, also middleware. In fact, the whole userland is depending on a 100%
functioning kernel – otherwise it’s just no fun anymore.

When I was younger, I could understand the „fixation“ on getting things into mainline – now, 
with more years on my back, I believe things would have turned out differently if we were
to follow the path of most commercial developers – which is, freezing the kernel at one point
of time to allow the rest of the folks to move forward without a moving target.

Later on, perhaps, submit stuff upstream, jump to another mainline kernel (if necessary), rinse
and repeat.
