I don't believe you are quite understanding what we are telling you:
Trying to run a development kernel just after the declaration of the
feature freeze is essentially equivalent to juggling two dozen lit
sticks of dynamite - it is not that "something bad might happen" but
that "something bad will happen" unless you know how to put out the
fires or analyse the limbs just blown off to understand the details of
what went wrong, and how to fix them - particularly without those limbs
immediately available.
