We're on openSUSE since the beginning, and we have several openSUSE 11.1
still running, but with actual 3.3 kernels. It's possible. Depending on
your hardware, there can be some corners, but they are solveable. In our
case, those servers are on VMware ESXi 5, that's no problem.
Basically, just download the newest kernel, go to
gzip -cd /proc/config.gz >.config
(this copies your current .config), then do
and change what you like/need, compile and install the kernel.
It's good to keep the old one in the /boot/grub/menu.lst, so you're
easily able to start that should the new one not start at first.
But this is a bit OT, so we should end it on the xfs list.
