I'll have to do the patchsets anyway, and I think it will be easier to
update them more frequently than working through a huge amount of
patches every other month.

Regarding version dependencies: I would like to remove them from CVS,
but in case of the saa7146 driver Michael Hunold would object, I think,
because the analog saa7146 card drivers use it...

I think Gerd Knorr has a script to automatically remove them when
creating patches, maybe I'll look into that.
