    The 2.6.9 -> 2.6.10 patch is 28 MB, and while the changes that went into
    2.4 were limited since the most invasive patches were postponed for 2.5,
    now _all_ patches go into 2.6 .

    Yes, -mm gives a bit more testing coverage, but it doesn't seem to be
    enough for this vast amount of changes.
