    Remove the slide "How To Create Kernel Patches"
    Since we're moving away from tarballs, doing patches with diff no
    longer makes sense. Talking about the Git details here is really
    moving away from the scope of the training, so just remove this.

-    \item Make your changes in \code{linux-3.5.5-patch/}
-    \item Run \code{make distclean} to keep only source files.
-    \item Create a patch file:
-      \code{diff -Nur linux-3.5.5/ linux-3.5.5-patch/ > patchfile}
-    \item Not convenient, does not scale to multiple patches

-    \begin{itemize}
-    \item Use \code{quilt} (tool to manage a stack of patches)
-    \item Use \code{git} (revision control system used by the Linux kernel
-      developers)
