Linux LTS kernel is outdated

2021-05-09, 19:51 PM
I know, this topic is a bit pedantic ;-)
As of now the Linux LTS (long term support) kernel in use seems to be outdated.
The kernel in use is 4.14.113, however the latest version available for this LTS kernel is 4.14.232.
I'm not really that familiar with the relation between Android / mainline Linux, but I guess there are some custom patches required in order to support the phone itself?
Is there another reason to not include the latest minor version of the Linux LTS kernel?
 
Minor versions of the Linux kernel usually include bug/security related fixes.
Not using the latest minor version of the Linux 4.14 kernel is somewhat against the purpose of a LTS kernel.
 
Can someone shed some light on this? 
 
System information:
  •  Software channel: reteu
  •  Build number:       QSBS30.62-29-11-3
