There shouldn't be any problem; that tree is an identical copy of my
local tree which uses no alternatives.  It always contains an entire
set of Linus' tree with no additional repacking.

The only reason to pull this tree into a copy of Linus' tree is that
it'll avoid fetching 400MB or so of Linus' pack files over http from
the UK, instead only fetching 34MB of objects.
