Note that not all of the patches are applied (the ext3 online-resize
and reservations patches aren't, and they are rather large.

The big patches are:

linux-2.6.2-tux.patch
  Adds the tux kernel-based web server.
linux-2.6.7-modsign-mpilib.patch
  Adds (along with five smaller patches) signed modules
linux-2.6.0-4g4g.patch
  Enables the 4G kernel/userspace split
linux-2.6.7-mlock.patch
  Makes maximum per-process mlock usage an rlimit
linux-2.6.7-netdump.patch
  Adds the network-based crashdump architectire
linux-2.6.0-exec-shield.patch
  Adds (along with a few other patches) the exec-shield security stuff

That accounts for the bulk of all of the changes.
