SubjectRe: Linux 2.5.0


Yes, I realize that. When switching from one tree to another I reverse the
patches back to the fork point (using patch -R) and then apply the appropriate
patches for the tree I want. That's the method I've used for a long time for
keeping up with both Linus' -preX kernels and Alan's -acX kernels with only a
single source tree. (After 2.5 has been out for awhile I'll just drop 2.4
altogether and then it won't be an issue.)

But keep in mind that this is only the fork point, from now on more and
more things will diverge and patches for one will not necessarily apply to
both trees.
