We used to have lots of patches in the kernel (between 5 and 15), so a
single -ARCH patch was created.
Now, the number of patches is fairly small and I am thinking maybe we
should go back to single patches.

Optimally, we could even have a git tree that tracks "our" kernel - at
the time my git skills were not advanced enough to do this, but now I
know how to do it.

I'm unsure which way is the most transparent.
