It'll probably make some of them work and break others. It's pretty
hard-coded in most of them that the flow is from 2.6.25 ->
2.6.26-{pre,rc}*; whether or not they permit a zero probably depends on
if they know what is available or not (ketchup wouldn't be able to, for
example, but the kernel.org incdiff robot *might* "just work".)
