I can only quote the guy who maintains the stable Linux kernel releases:
"Conclusion

Again, update your kernels, don’t delay, and don’t stop. The updates to 
resolve these problems will be continuing to come for a long period of 
time. Also, there are still lots of other bugs and security issues being 
resolved in the stable and LTS kernel releases that are totally 
independent of these types of issues, so keeping up to date is always a 
good idea.

Right now, there are a lot of very overworked, grumpy, sleepless, and 
just generally pissed off kernel developers working as hard as they can 
to resolve these issues that they themselves did not cause at all. 
Please be considerate of their situation right now. They need all the 
love and support and free supply of their favorite beverage that we can 
provide them to ensure that we all end up with fixed systems as soon as 
possible."
