It sounds fairly intrusive to me to introduce and support a new kernel
in our repositories. And I feel quite uneasy about this set of patches
not having been accepted upstream. Is there a particular reason why the
current state (packages in the AUR, built on-demand by those users that
are interested) is dissatisfying?

In your view, should we also package other patchsets, such as Con
Kolivas' (by far the most popular linux-* package on the AUR)?
