Sorry for learning and fixing delays...
I have now created a tree based on Torvalds' clean
v2.6.37-rc1 that is available straight off kernel.org:
NOTE: I am no Jedi yet. I still have to learn a few
things about git I believe, right now this is really a -next
type tree where I rebase the topic branches partly against
each other, so it is being pushed out with forced updates,
sometimes changing a lot of stuff inside the branches.

Right now this is just plain old v2.6.37-rc1 since Russell
merged a lot of the stuff we wanted into that RC.
But if desired by the other members I can sure move over
to Russells tree as a baseline.

Exploring the remote branches on that git you will
find a "next" tag now..

Right now this is what I have.
Now we only need to mainline a few thousand patches
of platform support :-)
