We do maintain a quilt(akpm) style patches on http://ext2.sf.net, the
latest patches are always at
http://ext2.sourceforge.net/48bitext3/patches/latest/

We thought about doing git initially, still open for that doing do, if
it's more preferable by Linus or Andrew. Just thought it's a lot
easiler for non git user to pull the patches from a project website.
