Here are some tools.

# prerequisite:
apt-get install git; # as root

# to get the kernel history:
git clone \
https://kernel.googlesource.com/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git
cd linux

# to view the changelog:
git log v3.2..

# to grep change descriptions:
git log --grep=min_free_kbytes v3.2..

# to view the patches corresponding to changes:
git log --patch v3.2.. -- mm/

# graphical interface
apt-get install gitk; # as root
gitk v3.2.. -- mm

# web interface:

The "exploring git history" section of the git user manual has more
details:
