I would recommend building the latest kernel,if it doesn't boot please git bisect and send
in a bug report with the commit to revert, if  there is a obvious commit that causes issues.
If you don't known the maintainer/lists to send the message to run ./scripts/get_maintainer -f
on the file in question from the root directory of your cloned git tree and is should tell you
who to mail the message to and cc the message to.
