Default r10372 - dists/sid/linux-2.6/debian/patches/features/arm

Surely one could argue that the source is still available through
subversion, and therefore it isn't a GPL violation to change the patch
series even though it is released?

If indeed it is a violation, what would be your advice? It seems that
2.6.24 is eventually going to be used for etchnhalf, and without
updating these patches, users will not be able to use etchnhalf on the
Linksys NSLU2. Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, I'll do this. Thanks.
