Well, we know that the new kernel runs the old binaries, but the
new binaries don't run on the old kernel. So before releasing
new binaries, release the kernel first, and perhaps allow some
time to shake the bugs out. Apparently, the binaries from the
first week after the change aren't in too good a shape yet, and
I would prefer this to be fixed first.
