Since OLPC's "upstream" is both Linus's kernel releases, and Fedora's
distributions, there are two upstream places to push OLPC's hardware
support patches to.  Have we only been trying to get them into one of
those places (Linus's)?

The F11 kernel currently carries about 60 patches beyond Linus's version.
Some are tiny 4kb patches; others are 300KB.  Why aren't any of the
XO-1 hardware support patches included in the F11 kernel?
