This is all a cunning plan(TM) by Linus, he was beginning to believe that
nobody was using his daily patches (read his latest patch announcements to see
what I mean), so the 1.3.90 kernel includes this simple but very very
effective "mail linus if you install 1.3.90" trick. I think he should by now
be sufficiently impressed by his faithful patch followers to not have to repeat
this plan for a while, not before 2.1.89 anyway.
