A source layout change is the lest of the problems pushing code back from
companies using FreeBSD. When $WORK rearranged our FreeBSD-based tree, we
simply provided a perl script to run over patch files that fixed up the
sed -e 's,sys/amd64,sys/arch/amd64,g' patchfile > newpatchfile
isn't that hard to do...
The fact that we totally rototilled the bge and em drivers FreeBSD 6.1->6.2
is a MUCH bigger problem to the commercial users of FreeBSD and their
[medium seriousness bug fixes were done by a full MFC of the driver,
vs. just spot fixing the needed changes]
