Hello,

We recently dropped the stable keywords for 4.14,
but 4.12 (the next stable in gentoo-sources) is no more
maintained from upstream.

The last update that 4.12 got from upstream was 2017-09-20,
and upstream is no more backporting security fixes since then.
Because of this, we will proceed to mask 4.12.

Keep in mind: If 4.14 works for you, you can keyword it and
continue to use it, if you need a more stable kernel, please
move to 4.9.
