Between the nfs-2.6 examples I mentioned earlier, the my2.6 clone
here, and the:

  $ git clone --reference my2.6 \
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/.../linux-2.7 \

example listed later in git-clone.txt, I think we're trying to push
linux.git examples too far ;).  However, I can't think of a simple
example for --reference that doesn't drag in a longer discussion to
motivate shared object repositories.  I'll hunt through the rest of
the docs looking for other examples I can reuse.

I think any doc rewrites should be outside the scope of this patch,
which should just replace references to linux-2.6.git with linux.git
(as it does).  Further cleanups to remove references to the NFS and
my2.{6,7} stuff and replace them with alternative examples can come as
follow-up patches in v2 of this series.  Does that sound reasonable?

Should the size updates from 2/2 (user-manual: Update download size
for Git and the kernel) go into the reroll, or have they been picked
up in a separate branch?
