bypassing the upstream process is not a valid option.
this is to the level where this guy should be stripped from it's kernel.org official status

As such, I'm rather surprised at the *low* amount of non-upstream patches included...
Also, this isn't really something new, they have been doing this as a git branch of first 3.0 and later 3.4 since August 2011, they have just never bothered doing releases before (as everyone using it would be doing their own development in git on top of it anyway).
