    perforce can export unified diffs for each changeste-equivalent right?
    for the sgi ptools SCCS we use internally I wrote a simple script
    that extracts this diff, the commit message automates a BK checking
    with this. This makes my job of keeping mainline in sync a lot easier
    and preserves the fine granuality. And it works nicely although the
    internal tree has some additional noise in it (kdb and HSM support).

    Umm, getting smaller changesets in is not such a pain :) Linus has
    stated very often that he prefers small patches that do one thing and
    I 100% agree with him. Let me suggest we heel you out to get the
    current update in (and I think with your latest slave_* fixes and/or
    Doug's scsi_scan.c revamp it's time to get it in now) and you send
    small, self-contained patches afterwards?
