    I've used your instructions before (for 3.17), it was really helpful.

    I've made a little script to handle the name changes on each release and ease the new kernel's test each time :)

    Here it is: https://gist.github.com/ivanalejandro0/cefa07dc0c16341cf09e I hope it's useful for someone.

  3. I've made update to this Kernel version. It's a stable one even the link told us "unstable". It seemd everything It's ok after update. Thanks for posting kernel updates. Kernel 4.0.3 was updated also from here :)
