Default Oracle’s Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel - is there more to it?

Dear kernel team and -devel,

Oracle recently announced [1] their own 2.6.32-based Unbreakable
Enterprise Kernel for their RHEL derivative called Oracle Linux. The
announcement promises severe performance improvements compared to the
stock RHEL kernel.


Do you know what patches they applied to the kernel and if they (or
parts of them) are acceptable for Debian's linux-2.6 kernel as well?


Best regards,
- Fabian
