[frankie@debian.org: Status of kernel-patches in sarge]

The check shown below is almost complete (but for a couple of 2.2 patches
and per-arch patches).
I'm asking if mass bug report filing is opportune at this stage.
IMHO patches which cannot be applied to debian kernel-sources are almost
unuseful and should be removed from sarge...

I'm performing an ongoing activity to check the applicability of current
kernel-patches against sarge kernel-sources for 2.4.27 and 2.6.8.

An almost complete summary is available at 


As you can see, there are a few patches which cannot be used
with neither 2.4.27 nor 2.6.8. Marked patches should be simply RC bugged
and hinted for remove if not aligned properly.

I would also point that too often patch names differes from their kernel-patch names,
without justification. I'm working on a little script to do this kind of
light check automatically, too.
