Unfortunately, although Mercurial can get this information, it doesn't
currently expose it to users in a way that you can use directly.

We do have plans to add commands for this purpose (search the mail
archives for "outgoing" and "incoming").  I guess they'd perhaps be
worth holding up 0.6c for.

Until then, I think that recursively diffing your working directory
against the working dir of a pristine clone of the kernel tree may be
your only option.
