Well, in how far is this different from maintaining your own
A slightly simpler route would be building a slightly-modified
linux-image package (same source, minimal code modifications).
Sure, your kernel package could be the official kernel image + small
diff. You might perhaps even convince the kernel maintainers to
include this package in their builds - I never checked how hard this
is but I'm really sure that I would have tried very hard to convince
them before I would start my own distribution. You must know I'm
very lazy once it comes to stupid gruntwork.
It would still break all automatically-built modules (linux-modules-extra
(?)), but then all users will need to do is build modules with m-a .
Is this really the case? Why?
