    True, the kernel performs well enough for gaming... its just other stuff that causes problems

    But you do know that more functionality and security mitigations do cost performance? But whatever.

    Kernel performance ain't that big of a problem. It's not a relevant disadvantage compared to other OSes and neither do a lot of people seem to care or complain. Have you considered contributing?
    it matters a great deal... maybe not for general desktop workloads but for gaming and server performance it goes the down the drain.

    There's some good stuff for AMD guys in there, but given the bugs in the last few releases (EXT4 bug comes to mind) I'm in no hurry to upgrade.

    Usually I'm not too excited about kernel releases, but FreeSync really is nice.

    Apart from that, I wouldn't want to miss the constant and more subtle improvements either.
    since when are performance regression "subtle improvements"?

    What excited you about previous kernel releases? If you don't have an interest in kernel development it makes sense that you don't care about these releases.
