LPC: Fitting into the kernel ecosystem

needed to build gfs1 module needed for redhat-cluster irc.
very easy question as the Ubuntu kernel team has never even tried to cooperate. Packaging is different and diverged a lot. There is near *zero* communication.
Also they don't care to contribute their patches upstream! For 2.6.26 I wanted to make sure to have the interesting ones upstream merged. Some of them were found irrelevant by now, but other merged (df0bcab2c66ac876d5e80864fca5cce944a44540, 292d73551d0aa19526c3417e791c529b49ebadf3,

Also it is true as all good people left Ubuntu (mjg59, kylem,..) their patchset is no longer that huge compared too earlier acpi hacks and so on.. You still find atrocities that would never find their way in a davej managed fedora kernel.
