Yes, that is the usual way to manage changes,
but the entire NetBSD source tree is very large, and we only have
about 100 lines of changes in total that I am trying to upstream.
So I propose we use a submodule for their untouched source tree and just keep a 
until that is upstreamed, then one day we can just use their tree as-is.

The debian package is bloated because the tree is committed as source and 
are also maintained in a folder, so the worst of both worlds.
