Running Upstream Kernels on Fedora

I am using Fedora 14 on two of my laptops, one an i686 and 
the other x86_64. They are thinkpads that I was having 
trouble with suspends and resumes. I took the chance and 
installed the latest kernel from the upstream kernel build 
source for Fedora, kernel 2.6.37....fc15, and both laptops 
are now suspending, hibernating and resuming successfully 
multiple times. So, I think that issue is solved. I haven't 
noticed any application problems yet, except the battery 
monitor will no longer estimate how much remaining time I 
have left, it will show the remaining percentage of charge. 
I also run windows in virtualbox and that works also with no 

I could not install the kernel headers as they conflict with 
the F14 headers which I am loath to replace without knowing 
what the consequences will be.

In the past I have installed upstream kernels but only for 
the current release version. What are the problems I'm going 
to run into if I leave things as they are, and what if I 
replace the F14 headers with the F15 headers?

Treading in unknown territory.
