Ah, ok, so this would be the same situation as the xen or vserver patches,
which we already have subarchitectures (maybe not very well named).
I would counsel you to get a svn checkout of the linux-2.6 package, and
investigate into what Bastian did for vserver, and do something similar.
I can add you to the alioth project if you want to commit stuff, altough i
think that maybe the exp branch (targeted as 2.6.16) would be best placed to
do this kind of work.
