Sort of like a fork, then.. that's a showstopper. I can't apply a patch that
contains a lot of merged patches without analising what each of them does.
If someone splits the part we're interested in, it could be added to my
package, but then I'd see no reason why it couldn't be added to Herbert's
kernel-patch-debian-2.6.0 (which my package uses) or even merged in upstream.
