Linux kernel image 4.3.0 in Jessie bpo?

Can we expect to see Linux kernel image 4.3.0 in Jessie backports any time soon?
Or is the current 4.2.0 planned to stay for some time now?

The 4.3.0 release brings official out-of-the-box support for Intel's
Skylake CPU line (4.2.0 requires preliminary_hw_support parameter set
on boot), and it also solves some problems with nVidia graphics cards

Or maybe installing 4.3.0 from testing will work fine too?
