but SuSe and I believe RedHat etc. etc. _do_ ship patched kernels. I
think the nfs patches are included.

Maybe your argument is only valid for those people who update and
conpile their kernel, but do not patch their new kernel with the
patches that where in the kernel shipped with the distribution.

There have been differences between Linus tree and the trees shipped
by the distributions for quite some time, so maybe the argument is not
valid at all :-).
