I'll blame my mailer for bringing old-threads up when new posts are made ;-)

Unless it is highly likely you'll be re-importing changes it is a bit of
a thin justification. For things like linux-headers we obviously already
have a mechanism that allows for raw import of violating headers. In
this case you are just grabbing a bunch of magic numbers that haven't
been updated for at least 11 years (if not more, the numbers pre-date
Linux's git history). But hey I'll happily defer to the maintainers on
this one!
