Linus seems happy with this first test. I just hope the disk usage doesn't become an issue down the road.

Yee-haa! 198 patches applied in less than 3 minutes. That's pretty exactly
the "one patch per second" I was aiming for (0.8 seconds per patch, so my
estimate from a few days ago of 0.75 was pretty much on the money).

ie we added 9MB of stuff from a set of emails that totaled a 859kB mbox.
So say an expansion of about 10x over the pure emailed patches. Which is
not out-of-line with my expectations, but considering that you _could_
have just compressed the patches and thrown the headers away and you'd
have gotten a 190kB archive of just pure patches, it's not like this is
I don't think I ever claimed it would be ;)
Anyway, I'm not going to release this tree, because quite frankly I want
to double-check that everything went right, and I want to re-base the
archive on some more history than starting _purely_ from scratch in
2.6.12-rc2 (maybe from 2.6.11), but in general it looks good. Now, if I
can get the stupid merging going on, it will actually be _useful_ ;)
PS. Yes, the tree still builds after this exercise ;)
