6 One reason is security fixes. Sometimes longterm vanilla already
7 includes the fixes from mainline, and when it does not, I know that the
8 diff will nearly always apply because they are just two branches of the
9 same git tree.
11 The other reason is the extra kconfig options in the gentoo sources,
12 which are on by default and I don't want any of them. I don't remember
13 anymore but I _think_ at some point it wouldn't let me turn them off
14 without extreme violence.
