It's merged in 2.6.20-arnd3, but I generally don't like to have
it in my code, since it won't ever get upstream.

I sometimes merge systemsim.git into a branch of cell-2.6.git,
but I stopped doing that after ericvh removed some objects
from his repository and that broke my own one.

It may be worthwhile to have a merged tree again, that combines
my patches with ps3-linux.git and systemsim.git.

Good point. I frequently forget to update the git tree, in part
because there seem to be few people that want to use it, so I
mainly use it for merging with paulus.

If you think it helps, I can integrate the git stuff into my
scripts so that we get a branch in there for every patch set
I upload to my patches directory.

I use plain quilt, with a small number of additional scripts to
check consistency of my patches and to upload it in the form
that I can use for kernel.org and for importing with git-applymbox.
