There is a scratch build of 2.6.34 for F13 that you might want to test:

For F12 things get trickier as there was a bump of the kernel interface
for Nouveau.

2.6.32 is a (relatively) long term support kernel. I wouldn't be surpised
to see F12 use that for the duration.

2.6.33 has about one more upstream update left in it, so I expect F13 to
move on to 2.6.34 before its EOL.
