I was going to use this as an opportunity to plug "patch-kernel", but I
forgot that the late development kernels are always thrown off by Linus'
bizarre numbering schemes.

Here is a patch that I am using to patch the kernels, which does
understand the current naming scheme.

As usual, it is not intended to be rolled into the released kernel,
as Linux tends not to break the numbering scheme when it becomes a
stable branch. However, others may find this useful.
