Actually, I just went back a re-read the old thread about config
fragments. I can't seem to find anything like a consensus, but I don't
want to give up, so here is what I plan to do...
Create a git repo, (kernel/configs.git ?)
Have a branch called config-core-tracking which will contain
the idea being that this is a topic branch to pull into
linux-linaro-core-tracking. I'll also keep config-core-3.X branches for
previous linux versions, so people lagging tip have access to them.
I'll put the vexpress/origen/imx5 fragments into a branch called
config-boards-tracking so they are available to experiment with. Though
I believe that any Landing Team wanting to use config fragments for
their kernel would want to add their fragment to their working tree as a
Now, if the Ubuntu kernel packaging scripts could gain an option to
generate a config from these fragments... :-)
