Well, as we all know, the release of sarge is rather soon. Therefore,
I think it would be a good idea to go now for the "everyone uses the
same kernel-source-package and arch-specific patches". This has the
advantages that it is not so difficult to reach from current state,
and that we get the experience to know whether it's worth to go to a
unified kernel source package after release of sarge or not.
