So as to minimize the time and effort patching a kernel, especially if the tree 
(and/or hash level) against which the patches were created fails to be 
specified on a mailing-list.  Plus, there appears to be questions raised on 
how, precisely, the implementation should ultimately be modeled and especially 
given that, who knows at this point what number of patches will ultimately be 
submitted?  I know I've built the "7-patch" one (painfully, by the way), and 
I'm aware there's another 15-patch set out there which I've not yet examined.
