Oh, but to answer your second question, the only directories you really
need are the patched linux source tree (linux/), and the cmds/
SOURCES and SPECS are all RPM-build specific files (which account for
about 8 megs of the expanded patch size), and SCRIPTS is for
maintenance. There's also a top level Makefile (above linux/ and cmds/)
that you can ignore. You can delete them all, and just build your
kernel from the linux/ directory, and build the xfs tools from cmds/
See http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/pr_source.html for details.
