Indeed, if /usr/src/linux/patches was a file, the conflicts would be
impossible to manage. But suppose it was a directory and each patch
created a small description file in that directory. This would provide the
desired information without having the big mess :-)

It's been suggested that config info be saved using the following:

<.config sed -e '/^#/d' -e '/^[ ]*$/d' | gzip -9 >> image

The patch descriptions could be saved in a similar manner:

cat /usr/src/linux/patches/* | gzip -9 >> image

Alternatively, instead of outputting to image, one could output to
/boot/patch-$KERNELVERSION, (or wherever)
