You know the reasons very well:

We need a stable kernel for our customers, but patches and extensions
get only accepted for the 2.5 kernel, which is  far  from  acceptable
for  a  customer project. So we simply have no choice but maintaining
our own trees.

Nobody prevents you from working - just go on. The  only  restriction
that  _everybody_  will  be  facing  is  that CVS write access is not
granted immediately. Send me your patches, and  I  promise  to  merge
them  in  with  the  minimum possible delay. Then we'll discuss write
permissions again. My descision  is  based  on  experience  from  the
PPCBoot project, and I see no good reason to change my mind.
