A kind of problem with 3.16 was its support as it wasn't picked for
LTS by anyone.

So personally I'd prefer to use another kernel version for OpenWrt
release. A one with LTS would be great. Recently we've started working
on 3.18, which is probably the nearest kernel with a chance of LTS.
And it case it won't be LTS, personally I'd look for another one.

Would it be possible for you to switch to 3.18? It's still not ready
(not compiling) as it was started just yesterday. But I think we will
try to stabilize this one.
