You should be able to do this already.  Each "TAKE" message already
included the date and time of the TAKE (a.k.a. commit).  Just pick a
time after that and before the next sync with Linus and you should have
the kernel version you're looking for.  

So to get 2.4.6, you can use the date "Wed Jul 4 22:00:00 PDT 2001."
You're going to have to look up how to mangle this date into the format
CVS wants, but theoretically anyone should be able to do that.
