This is only for development series of kernels -- the stable series
generally compile.  He's known to do complete rewrites of sections of the
kernel during development series, get the bits he needs to work with it,
and then release it.  Other folks have to bring their devices, fs code, or
networking code up to date by submitting a patch back to him.  In this
case those things almost certainly don't compile (unless you happen to
have the exact same config as Linus).
