In addition, the ubuntu subdirectory has not yet been patched in, so those drivers are not built, however this can easily be addressed in another upload. I have added scripts based on the rebase/retag scripts for the lpia kernel, for easier maintenance in the future.

That looks pretty sane to me. There are zero patches which is nice.
Looking at the minor deltas in the rebase scripts I think we probablly
clean things up better there and perhaps even get that to zero. Will
look at it soon.
