Whatever. In the past, it was completely impossible, because Linus did
not post his tree. You had to wait, sometimes several days, for a
pre-patch in order to see a patch Linus "checked in." And even then,
you were required to pick apart the prepatch to dig out the specific
change(s) you are interested in.

BK has actually made this _possible_, since you can now see (even
without BK) Linus's tree as it gets updated throughout each day.
Individual csets or full patches against point releases. This is a much
more fine grain than in the past.

Instead of ranting, asking a simple question would have gotten you the
simple answer (given by DaveM). Man, when you make an assumption, you
go all out... I bet the Microsoft PR department could put your FUD
skills to good use.
