After talking with "maks" at IRC I've changed my mind and now I agree on
the renaming.

The only good reason that I still have to keep it is due GIT tree name
but I don't think it's a requirement to us to follow it.

experimental might be used if we had a linux-2.7 or something while
it's not OK for sid and Maks and Bastian agree that we're not going to
have more the one kernel source on the distro anymore so there's no
more need to allow this diversion.
