$ pacman -Q linux linux-rt linux-rt-lts
linux 3.17.4-1
linux-rt 3.14.25_rt22-1
linux-rt-lts 3.10.58_rt62-2

No problems with 3.17.4 and all versions 3.17.<4 here, with one
exception, building modules for the outdated virtualbox version 4.3.12
still works for kernels <= 3.16 (with and without rt patch), but
doesn't work for 3.17 kernels. Building the virtualbox modules for
kernels 3.17 works for current version of virtualbox, unfortunately USB
is broken for all versions of virtualbox > 4.3.12. A while ago rt
kernels > 3.8.13-rt locked my AMD machine, but that doesn't happen
any more, e.g. the above listed linux-rt are ok, at least for
non-audio work, I didn't used them for audio.

However, some distros for good reasons provide LTS kernels, for Arch
Linux it is

$ pacman -Si linux-lts | grep Version
Version        : 3.14.25-1
