Right.  Also, at this point I'm not sure what 3.12 actually buys us
over a known 3.11.

Are you running any ARM machines?  My understanding is that our F20
kernel has patches that enable important ARM stuff that isn't in
rawhide (3.12) because it was conflicting with the churn.  So that
would need to be added and tested, given ARM is primary on F20.
