Not so much philosophy as what people are interested in working on. Most
of the contributors want to see the support upstream.

With the kernel git tree now hosting patch sets for specific kernel
versions is much easier (which you did indeed suggest before) if anyone
wants to backport the patchset (considering the newer clang doesn't need
the patches to LLVM/clang that were necessary at the time of kernel 3.11)

Perhaps he's using a vendor kernel tree? You can't always choose the
version you want to use if you're stuck with a vendor tree. :(
