I'd just like to point to a kernel that is maintained and has the
features that I need. The one at github.com/beagleboard/kernel is the
obvious choice since that's what's shipped on the Beaglebone Black.

The point of my email is just that the github.com/beagleboard/kernel
repository is not in a form that nicely integrates with buildroot due
to it just containing patches for a Linux kernel. I'm just looking for
pointers on how best to handle this.

For the time being, I just ran the github.com/beaglebone/kernel script
to create a patched kernel, tarred it up and posted it on a server for
buildroot to download. It will become annoying after a few updates to
the patch set, and I may consider automating it, but for now it keeps
me moving forward. I'll happily change what I'm doing should a better
way come up.
