At least some of the functionality in my 4 packages appears to be
missing from the latest 2.2 kernel.  A simple cleanup would restore
the patch against 2.2.25, and allow SSE instructions.  I understand
that the state of the art in kernel patch packages has changed, and
version specific packages are deprecated in favor of some other
mechanism.  I will try to read up on this -- pointers appreciated.  In
short, I have no objection to the removal of the packages unless their
presence would facilitate an update of the package contents to the
latest kernel, which I would like to effect, at least in the p3 and
raid cases.

Take care,
