Most but not all of them. A few of them could be fixed anyways.

The problem here is that I've got no time to maintain an updated git tree with
my engine.... and I'm still fixing stuffs, so I prefere to manage my patchset
directly in order to avoid a 1000+ patches on my tree.
Dumping my patchset on a git tree wouldn't make its usage easier and would
make me loose time and bandwidth to maintain it.
People able to check out a git tree and build it are also able to apply the
patchset to a clean one. It makes them spare time, too, as they don't have to
maintain and build 2 different trees. With stacked git it's easy to add/remove
the patchset.
Anyways, if somebody wont take the (again, useless imho) job of maintain an
updated tree with it, feel free to do it :-)
