Kernel patches


Where can I find a list of the applied patches to the SuSE kernel (default one) from the vanilla sources? I can't download a whole suse kernel-source rpm package (too large) and I can't view the files either (I'm in Winblowz right now - hate me, coz I hate myself already), so if anyone can point me to the right place I'd appreciate it. I've been googling for quite some time and found nothing so far.

rpm.pbone.net can show me the changelogs for various rpms but they are too old and the information I'm looking for is spread throught the huge file.

I only know the kernel-source.src.rpm. I can offer you to e-mail the patches, if you tell me for which kernel. The list of the individual patches is long.
This is from the 9.3 default kernel:

OK.. that's exactly what I was looking for. 10x a lot for the quick reply Actually, I'm interested in its bootsplash implementation. I want to implement a bootsplash in one of my gentoo kernels (2.6.12-ck3 and nitro4) because I am not satisfied with what I have. My brother will install SuSE 9.3 tonight and I'll steal the patches from him . If in the process of takin this patch I'll grab a few more optimisations and stuff, I'll be even happier.

That would have been easier:

Yeah, I just found that site today I didn't know SuSE uses that patch. I thought they had something modified (in-house patch). On top of that I wanted to see what else SuSE plugs into its kernels (and compare it with the kernels included with some other distros, especially my gentoo and its nitro-sources)
