That makes sense for KVM because it's reached a level of maturity where they 
only bother doing the backports of specific kernel releases. I don't think 
it's a good idea for ceph to go this direction yet. Mostly I'd hate to see the 
standalone client packages only released when there's a new kernel. It seems 
like something that would be more useful once ceph has some kernel releases 
under it's belt.
