I don't have Ubuntu Precise on my laptop. However, it looks like it might be some Dell XPS 13 related issue but I couldn't verify it myself after upgrading to the latest mainline kernel. Check also this thread: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2089845&page=3

comment How do I prevent apt-get from upgrading packages built from source?
I tried the "apt-mark hold" thing, but then it shows that the package has been kept back. I know that this is the latest version, so I don't want to see this warning each time I do an upgrade. apt pinning provides a "cleaner" solution to this in my opinion.

The problem with this as you said is time, and if it is not a security vulnerability it might not be backported in a stable distribution :( I have already filed a bug report here: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xen-api/+bug/1195821
