I am debugging a curious issue with the kernel not supporting my laptop completely. (This is my bug report)
I have installed the mainline builds from the mainline kernel ppa (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/), and discovered that the last working kernel version is v3.2.1. Anything after it, i.e. v3.2.2, breaks. So I was going to use the git bisect tool to identity the specific commit between v3.2.1 and v3.2.2 which breaks on my laptop.
I followed the instructions but the git repo they link to doesn't have the tags for v3.2.x, so I found another one which sounds official and has the right tags: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git;a=summary, but after building v3.2.1 I still had the issue.
So, what git repo do the mainline kernels come from?
Also, are any patches/changes applied to them after being retrieved from the repository which wouldn't be in my build?
