I heartily encourage you to download and apply kernel patches instead
of downloading 6mb files. There's a reason why Linus makes them
available and it has very little to do with his health.

It might be a good idea to make available only every tenth or fifth
complete snapshot of the kernel. It saves space on the ftp sites and
it encourages people to learn how to patch their kernels.
