none, it is just useful these days to build in //.

hpa has not yet pulled the known fixes on top of 1.5.18,
but yes git is more practical to have around as you get the
whole history too.

didn't want to be bothered by questions..

again with git it is easy to keep up with latest vanilla.
no point in dowloading older snapshots. that way it is easiest
also to test specific linux version against. one just need to
git checkout them.

I think your question is more anchored in the old tradition of
bigger unixes with several users sharing /usr/src/
these days a ~/src/ with your own compiled stuff eases dev.
happy hacking
