--------------{ x86.git instructions }---------->

 git-clone git:// linux-2.6.git
 cd linux-2.6.git
 git-branch x86
 git-checkout x86
 git-pull git:// mm
 git-log HEAD@{1}.. # see what's in #mm

(do subsequent pulls via "git-pull --force", as we frequently rebase the
git tree. NOTE: this might override your own local changes, so do this
only if you dont mind about losing thse changes in that tree.)
