I don't understand the question. They ship kernel patches and they ship
pre-patched RedHat kernel-source rpms. What more do you want?

Subject: Why release XFS as patches against a kernel ?
As a linux user, I really appreciate your efforts to port your high quality
filesystem XFS to linux as open source. However, I cannot understand your
release scheme. You must understand that people will just want to download a
tarball, `patch` the patches, and `./configure;make all;make install`. I
sincerely feel that lots more people would give this fine fs a try if you
would find the time to release XFS as a tarball, which people could just
install by applying a patch to the kernel source, and compile by issuing a
'make all' on the command prompt.
Just my 2$...
Anyways, keep up the good work.
