If you want server support, you need to stick to RHEL6.x, rhel7.x or SLES12 kernels.
Outside of those you are on your own for ldiskfs patches, I guess.

You'll need this patch http://review.whamcloud.com/#/c/15395/ to enable arm building on our tree.

Clients would likely build with a wider set of kernels including various ubuntu variants.
