I initially had a linux--main--2.6 repository where I applied the main
released patches from but I was missing the latest patches in
the BK tree.

I recently wrote a script that converts the Linux (BK->)CVS repository
while preserving the changeset information (this repository, retrievable
via rsync, has a ChangeSet file with all the logs and the other files'
logs containing the changeset number). You could also use the same
tla-cvs-sync script but it loses the individual changesets. It cannot
track renames since CVS doesn't support them but it is still usable.

I don't have the necessary infrastructure but I hope James Blackwell
would be kind enough to host a Linux kernel repository on the site. I will donate the script :-)
