CVS could help a lot (with cvsps), but the problem is that
there are a lot of white space differences between the
code in the kernel and in our CVS (some horrible indentation
corruption included). This make generating patches for the
kernel a lot more difficult than it should be. Michael
managed to do it anyway, with a lot of manual work, but
I was never really happy with the large chunks he generated.
I will try to create a whitespace-only patch to sync up kernel
and linuxtv.org code, but that's not going to be easy.
