Think about it as "which kernel version was _this_ patch generated
against" - it's a guide for me to know which kernel version it
should be applied to.  The nearest Linus release (rc or final) is
generally sufficient.

If it doesn't apply to my current base, then I might check out that
version, apply it there, and then merge it in, resolving any
conflicts during the merge.

It started off with a different purpose: when we had the older
development system, such as the 2.x series kernels, we would have
even x being the current stable kernels, and concurrently we'd
also have x+1 as the development series.  When someone sent me a
patch back then, it was important to know which kernel series it
was meant for.

I decided not to get rid of it because it provides useful
information when patches don't apply, and gives more options
than me just discarding the patch with a comment saying it
doesn't apply.
