Conceptually, it should be one distribution, with several source tar files.
Each tar file should contain the same version number in the name. If you
want the complete distribution, untar them all in /usr/src. But you should
be able to untar, for example, just:

linux-unarch-2.1.5.tar.gz
linux-i386-2.1.5.tar.gz

and get a complete source tree for i386 (substitute the architecture tree of
your choice). It seems straightforward enough, and it's all in how you tar
up the complete release.
