That's pretty much what git submodule would do, isn't it?

I really don't see the point in doing that. We want to be part of
regular kernel history and release cycle. We want people to be able to
see what's going on in our tree to keep us honest and we want to make
the barrier of entry as low as possible.

It's not just about code, it's as much about culture and development process.
