It would be, except that those patches are now in the "master" branch
of the ext4 git tree, which is an implicit promise on my part not to
rebase or change the commit.  This allows people to build git trees
based on the "master" branch.  Commits between "master" and "dev" are
still subject to change, although I am pretty happen with them at that
point, so it will general be only to fix bugs in the patches, or to
adjust the commit descrpition, etc.
