This is not a good idea.  From following discussion on the kernel
list, a 2.0.22 is planned, and possibly other updates to the 2.0.x
series, if needed. Creating a rogue 2.0.22 would be bad form, not to
mention in bad taste, IMHO.  If there is a need for the patches, call
the patched version 2.0.21deb or something, or wait for 2.0.22.

Just my 2 pennies.
