Hi All,

I am looking at making it so that buildroot can get the linux kernel 
from a git repository.

Has anyone else done this before?

Any pointers on what will need doing?

If not then I'll hack away on it for a bit and see where I get to, 
assuming success I'll post something here. From a cursory look it 
doesn't look too bad, the biggest problem is knowing the kernel version 
before obtaining the repository, for now I might just make it that the 
user has to specify it but I'll see how  I go.
