Already done! :-)

I think I'll try that.

The repo I used was the linux-stable one from kernel.org, so it should apply
cleanly to the letux-kernel. What I did was cherry-pick the initial letux-400
changes on top of each release I wanted, build the kernel and run it on the
minibook. If it worked then I tagged it. I also tagged some commits that
didn't work. As I moved through the releases, I cherry-picked later commits
instead of the original one.

Sure. I will clean up what I have (remove non-working commits and tags) and
push the repository somewhere. Then we can think about whether we should
strip out everything except useful releases for the letux-400 repo if that
seems useful.
