The kernel version is not supported

there was a patch recently from Lubomir, title:
dump-dmesg: Understand >= v3.11-rc4 dmesg

But in makedumpfile.h the latest supported version still is:
#define LATEST_VERSION          KERNEL_VERSION(3, 9, 6)/* linux-3.9.6 */

resulting in:
The kernel version is not supported.
The created dumpfile may be incomplete.


I wonder whether there are other known issues with latest
kernels which are the reason LATEST_VERSION did not get increased
and which are those?

I also wonder what the concept of LATEST_VERSION is.
One does not know in advance which change in a newer kernel version
might break things?
So this one needs to be increased with every new kernel version?

Thanks for any hints,
