If we used hg subrepo, each PETSc version would reference a SHA1 from
buildsystem. Then we could just have buildsystem. When a patch needed to go
into "buildsystem-release", we would apply the patch to the buildsystem
version that release depends on and update petsc-release to reference that
SHA1, independent of the existence of post-release patches (only relevant
to petsc-dev) in the buildsystem repository.
