Maybe lots of you already know the answer, maybe it's a really stupid
question. If it is, please tell me. I'll not be offended.
Why there are two different kernel trees? There is always the official
release, provided by Torvalds, and then Alan provides a patch merging Linus's
stuff, and adding (?) tons of bug fixes.
Why aren't the -ac patches completely merged to the official tree, and you
centralize the work on single kernel patches ?? Won't it be easier to
I'm so sorry if it's a really stupid question. It's because I never know what
pre-patch to apply, the -ac* or the -pre*. In doubt, I apply Alan's, because
it appears to be always Linus stuff, and more bug fixes, recently, the
Linus's -pre* appears to have merges from the -ac on each release.
I just don't understand why it can all be merged.
