Would it be that hard to have scripts on kernel.org generate the diff
against 2.6.11 when Greg puts up the 22.214.171.124 diff against 126.96.36.199, then
have the front page have two links, one for patch against 2.6.11 and one
for patch against previous 2.6.11.z ? That along with the full source
(which I see is up there already) should make everyone happy, and if it is
automated the burden on Greg should be minimal.
