SubjectRe: Linux and not version dirs

this is what I do usually


I have a directory with lets say linux-1.3.57
I have a soft link to it called linux

I download the patch to 1.3.58
I do the following things

% mv linux-1.3.57 linux-1.3.58
% ln -sf linux-1.3.58 linux
% gzip -cd | patch -p0

I guess I could write a script to do it but I am too lazy
