If the chnage goes directly to linux-2.[56] tree directly is it also
applied to linuxppc-2.5 as well? How do you keep it in sync with tree?

My logic says that if the changes that goes to 2.6 tree is not
incorporated to linuxppc 2.5 tree we have a major problem. It would be too
difficult to keep track of which tree has which.

I would rather like to think that has a subset of ppc specific
chnages that goes to linuxppc but linuxppc has all the changes that goes
to linux tree.
