Every change should have an entry in the changelog.  The only exception
being the "abbreviated" changelogs for the upstream rebases.

For eg..

* Sat Sep  9 2006 Dave Jones <davej redhat com>
- 2.6.17.13

This means that every patch that is listed at
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.17.13
is included in this build, and for more info check there.

every other change, even if its just changing a CONFIG_ option,
should get a changelog entry.  Occasionally I'll slip up and
forget to changelog something, but that's usually a rare case.
