    Alas this would simply make it more difficult for me to update things.
    For example I update Documentation/networking/8139too.txt each time
    there is a corresponding update to drivers/net/8139too.c. Having to go
    from current situation to patching two totally separate trees would be a
    PITA and regression from current workflow.
