I'd like to send a patch to arch/x86/kernel/smp.c but I'm not sure about 
2 details:

1) which branch of whose tree do I crate the patch against?
According to MAINTAINERS:

M:      Thomas Gleixner <tglx at>
M:      Ingo Molnar <mingo at>
R:      "H. Peter Anvin" <hpa at>
M:      x86 at
L:      linux-kernel at
T:      git git:// 

Is this the right branch and the correct tree?

2) how do I access archives of x86 at
