Hi Tiago,

Along with the above script from Tim, I've also put together a wiki to
try and describe in a general manner the sets of changes we carry which
differentiate the Ubuntu kernel from the upstream Linux kernel:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/FAQ/UbuntuDelta

I hope this helps.  Let me know if you need me to elaborate on anything.
Also, if anyone else on the team reviews the above, feel free to edit if
I've missed anything.  I also took the liberty to reference it from the
main Kernel/FAQ page.

Thanks,
Leann
