ummm... what "several hundred megabytes" statement?
Here's a link to your earlier statement about this topic from not so long ago. Quote:
It would also be nice to be able to build perf without having to download the entire kernel tree, I often don't have the space or the bandwidth for hundreds of megabytes of kernel source when I just want to quick build perf on a new machine.
(Plus your claim that there is no "perf only" mailing list is wrong as well, there's one at email@example.com.)
