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.
