Then we have some debian-specific kernel tarball and a bunch of assorted
patches, not an (as far as possible) unified source tree. If that's the
preferred form, then why do we need a version control system for it?
Furthermore, this scheme doesn't allow arch-specific kernel packages
without duplicating the debian/patches/ dir.
