Well, most of the recent 2.6 PPC kernel development was based on
sending _patches_ to akpm, I don't see how Linus' decision to stop
using BK will significantly affect this.
Also, BK trees don't go anywhere right now, so I guess we can still
use BK to get/maintain the latest official sources for patch
generation. I'm pretty sure Linus and other maintainers will come up
with replacement. Probably it won't be as convenient as BK at first,
but I hope this will be fixed eventually - there are couple of open
source revision control systems out there which look promising.
So, I wouldn't overly dramatize current situation.
