        I think that we can rename /usr/src/linux in /usr/src/freevms and make
all modifications in /usr/src/freevms. Thus, we can make diff to propose
patches from official Linux kernel.

        I can modify the makefile (and configuration utilities), but if we want

to modify all sources in the same time, we shall need a CVS tree...
