Good question. Let me extend this question from a slightly different -- 
possibly heretic on this mailing list -- point of view... when can we stop 
tracking upstream? Will the kernel for a certain machine ever be uhm.... "good 
enough"? I know that may not sound sexy, but both from a userland and from a 
distribution integrator point of view, I'd very much welcome if there was 
anyone doing kernel development with that goal in mind.
