I have gentoo-sources as a fallback but I'm maintaining my own git clone of linux-stable. I've been meaning to put it into packages_provided as I used to...

tuxonice-sources. If the default hibernation implementation were to offer compression and a decent progress display I would probably use gentoo-sources . (I don't use uswsusp because I am not interested in maintaining an initrd.)

But you *are*:
Code:
 ~ $ eix tuxonice-sources | grep Description
     Description:         TuxOnIce + Gentoo patchset sources
So it is gentoo-sources + TuxOnIce. :D

I use the Longterm stable releases from kernel.org because the prove a nice stable running system. They also proved my with bug fixes and security fixes. A more in-depth reason can be found on this POST.

PS. also running zen on my Linode

Mainly ck-sources here (since 3.8.3 I believe), but I do keep gentoo-sources around as well (not too sure if the latter still runs properly, as I've simply kept it up-to-date with old configuration, but haven't actually booted since 3.8 or 3.10'ish, I maybe guess).

As to why, well, mainly because the BFS provides interesting results to me.
