Sorry, but could you slow down a touch?

whats a 'vendor branched module' ?

surely this is equivalent to me making my own program, branching it, and
then going back and modifying the 'trunk'? (is trunk the right term?).

All I want to do is keep the linux kernel in local CVS so I can make
branches for the arm patches, and make branches off those branches for my
own modifications. Is this not possible?
