Here's what I did (on, from memory):

	mkdir ~/BK
	(cd ~/BK && bk clone -q bk:// linux-ia64-2.4)

	mkdir -p ~/bkexport-cache/linux-ia64-2.4
	mkdir -p /staging/helgaas/linux-ia64-2.4
	mkdir -p /pub/linux/kernel/ports/ia64/v2.4/testing/cset

	mkdir ~/bin
	cp ~dwmw2/working/bkexport/ ~/bin/
	cat <<-EOF > ~/bin/update-patch

		/bin/nice -n 12 /home/helgaas/bin/ /home/helgaas/BK/linux-ia64-2.4 /pub/linux/kernel/ports/ia64/v2.4/testing/cset /home/helgaas/bkexport-cache/linux-ia64-2.4 "" /staging/helgaas/linux-ia64-2.4

Then I just run ~/bin/update-patch by hand whenever I update
the BK tree.  dwmw2 runs it periodically from cron for linux-2.4
and linux-2.5, but my updates are much less frequent, so I just
do it by hand.
