This is a good idea. My only concern, of course, is regarding
regressions — the diff between the two upstream tarballs in question
is 156MB, although from a quick glance this is admittedly mostly test
and autotools related changes.

Can you vouch for upstream making sensible/reasonable decisions
between these minor releases? That would be necessary for a
hypothetical 2.6.11 too.
