There have been recent comments about the pace of kernel development

I doubt the diffstat from the last 6 kernel releases will tell this story.

Andrew Morton said it: "He suggested this may indicate that the kernel
is nearing completion. "Famous last words, but the actual patch volume
_has_ to drop off one day," said Morton. "We have to finish this thing
one day.",39020390,39221942,00.htm

I was wrong, as usual. The trend at is,
I think, being maintained.

Ah, but the percentage of lines is dropping as the kernel gets more bloated^H^H^H^H^H^H^featureful.

BTW: what is the baseline day zero code here? 2.6.0?
