OK, let me see... last kernel I downloaded in full... 2.1.98. Before that,
... 2.1.85. So, I patched 4 times (to 2.1.102-1 now) and before that
13. That makes 2 downloads (where linux-2.1.xx would have helped) vs 17
patches (where it would have been a RPITA)... guess what I'd prefer. And I
download full kernels rather regularly.
