If you are looking at the linux-next patch on, then it is
relative to 2.6.27, so will contain a lot of stuff in Linus' tree. Its
purpose is to allow people to recreate the linux-next tree from a kernel

In the linux-next git tree, the point in Linus' tree that it is based on
the the "stable" branch. If necessary, people should be able to bisect
between the "stabel" and "master" branches of a linux-next tree. Or, I
am told, between one linux-next tree and another (but that sounds painful
to me).
