i downloaded kernel version 126.96.36.199 from kernel.org and patched it with the according patch file from here.
but there is one thing i do not understand. after the patch is applied there is a second directory created. its name linux-188.8.131.52-Colibri but there are only a few files in it.
what is it for? do i have to copy the contents of linux-184.108.40.206-Colibir to linux-220.127.116.11?
i've got one more question.
what exactly are the improvements i can get with this patch? i saw that for example the kernel 18.104.22.168 has already support for the pxa270 colibri.
just to be sure i need this patch.
First of all:
I don't make patch for Platform Support for PXA270. Colibri PXA270/320 supported in vanilla kernel. I make Extended support for this platform, like support Compact Flash, I2C based RTC and some other perepherial devices. If you not use this devices - you may not use this patch.
Next. For apply patch run next command
patch -p1 < linux--colibri.diff
Into unpacked vanilla kernel dir. See man pages for GNU diff/patch for detail.
