It's pretty trivial, mostly removing things. The big problem is Rusty
based his on Linus' tree (and he's offline now), so I need to apply his
patches to that tree and then generate "diff" patches for your tree.

Btw, I'm still having trouble building a "baseline" config using the
cpus4096-v2 branch that actually boots. (UP boots ok.) Is this the
correct .git/config:

repositoryformatversion = 0
filemode = true
bare = false
logallrefupdates = true
[remote "linus"]
url = git://
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/linus/*
[remote "tip"]
url = git://
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/tip/*
[branch "tip-latest"]
remote = tip
merge = refs/heads/master
[branch "cpus4096-v2"]
remote = tip
merge = refs/heads/cpus4096-v2

It won't let me do a:

mkdir linux-2.6.tip
cd linux-2.6.tip
git-remote add linus git://
git-remote add tip git://
git-remote update

git-checkout -b cpus4096-v2 tip/cpus4096-v2
git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches/forcing
Did you intend to checkout 'tip/cpus4906-v2' which can not be resolved as commit?


git-checkout tip/cpus4906-v2
error: pathspec 'tip/cpus4906-v2' did not match any file(s) known to git.
Did you forget to 'git add'?
