It seems to me that getting a complete source for "every" new kernel is
wasteful and abusive of the server. It is so easy to make a dir for
patches and do something like the following.

/usr/src/linux/scripts/patch-kernel /usr/src/linux /usr/src/patches

Patches can be reversed as well. Having the patch makes it easy to see
what changed that broke whatever.
