Have you ever tried what you're talking about or is it a guess ?
For example, let's say that there's a bug introduced when merging
Linus tree with mips branch. How do you easily "bisect" in order to do
a binary seek of this bug ?
BTW, I noticed that Linux mips repository have several branches. Each
branch is tracking each kernel minor version. I think this is
completly useless :
1 - it makes the repository huge by keeping history since 2.2 (It's
pointless for most people)
2 - The way branches are made is broken : you can not fetch separate
branches without doing some "grafts" things
Why not simply ask Linus to pull from the mips tree ?
