Here's one:

 $ tar -Jxf testcase.tar.xz
 $ ulimit -n 1024
 $ find 
'debian/linux-patch-debian-2.6.32/usr/src/kernel-patches/all/2.6.32/debian' \
   ! -path '*/series/*' \
   -type f -execdir bzip2 '{}' ';' -execdir chmod 644 '{}.bz2' ';'

It's probably possible to reduce it more, but I'm lazy.

Thanks for looking into it.  If there's any other information I can
provide that would be useful, feel free to ask.
