I have a somewhat updated version of that at which I should
probably update for the 4.0 release. (It's pulled to 3.0 currently.)

Meanwhile you can download and extract that tarball, cd into it, then
"git checkout -f" followed by "git pull". (It doesn't have the checked
out files because it would make the tarball bigger, it's just the .git
directory.) That gives you a repository that goes from 0.0.1 to current,
although I haven't gone back and tagged the old releases yet.

Oh, you may want to edit .git/config so it pulls from linux instead of
linux-2.6. Largely cosmetic, but eh...
