You're right. There's no real reason to keep the linux tree around right
now and treat it any differently than we treat other source packages.

The problem though, the kernel docs and config file. There's no official
place to store those. I could think of /usr/share/doc/linux (or
/usr/share/doc/kernel) for the Documentation/* stuff, but how about the
.config file? /usr/share/kernel-config perhaps?
