The timeline for compilers would be simple - there is no need to
support any other compiler than 2.95.3 as long as it is the
recommended compiler version in the kernel documentation.

Most people that compile kernels for their computers do not have
insider information on kernel development so the kernel (including
drivers) should compile with the instructions provided with the
sources.
