That is the problem.  I do not want to remove either tag.  The one
called 'kernel' is a vendor tag (1.1.1, because we used the default).
The other one is a tag we created, using CVS, but somehow took the
number  This is why it is conflicting with the vendor tag
(because is the same as branch 1.1.1).

I would prefer not to lose the info that says where the file was
imported.  And, I do not want to lose the info on the 'pio_v1220b1'
branch.  That is why I was hoping there was some way I could make
these so they don't conflict.
