Could you show which Buildroot configuration exhibits the problem? From
a quick look, the only way for Buildroot to be told to use is
by specifying a custom kernel version. And in this case, it's the user
responsibility to make sure the URL is correct. Why would we keep in our mirror specifically and not the myriad of other kernel
versions that the user may select?
