kernel without any 'documentation' of why for what it is... I bet it

Patches should be extensively commented in the code that constitutes the
patch. It is better for the maintainer than a patch tag or a changes entry.
The only advantage of using the patch tag is that it can be processed by tools
without knowledge discovery in running text.

Of course, this also implies that the code itself should be explained in
comments, which is not the case more often than not.
