I'd be happier if.... well, see below.

All .28 series kernels (all rc kernels and the final one, too) do
not compile on Alpha at all. We reported this when rc1 came out
and the culprit and a possible solution were discussed[0], but
nothing materialized. I re-triggered this on bugzilla today[1],
hoping it will be fixed soon. Until then, vanilla .28 is unusable
on alpha.

I'll be trying that as soon as I find the time (read: somewhere
around summer 2015 if nothing gets added to my work-pile :))
