 I was about to mention the git incompatibility as I gave you the first 
answer. It's true what you say and I also find it annoying. That's why I use 
Linus tree.
I cannot, though, complaint to Ralph about this practice. It seems that he has 
done his best to preserve the CVS history of his tree. We can only thank him 
for that. It is just a lot of work to trim the tree and make it 
Linus-parallel.
There is also things that I don't know about git, so I won't jump to 
conclusions yet (as to whether it is feasible to merge with Linus).
