I thought I would try to automate this process a little bit, so I wrote
a script to run through and stop when it hits rejects, create the new
patch, etc.

I figured I should check to see if it is generating output like you
expect, before I do all the work.

What it does is refresh each patch with the non-conflicts, and then
generates a new patch with the same as the original, but with ".fixes"
appended to the end, and a "Fixes for 2.6.31-rc6" prologue.

(And yes, I know the "From:" attribution of the original patches is
wrong since it is assigning credit to me..I tried to fix this but it
didn't work...just ignore the "From" field in the original patch for now)

Here is a trial run of the first few patches.  When the original and
fixes patch is empty, I means "drop the patch" since its already upstream.


Does this look about right?

Kind Regards,
