Patching v3.2.21 kernel for BeagleBoard-XM

I need to patch up this v3.2.21 to support the Ethernet adaptor and the other devices.
The patch release now matches the kernel as seen.

ahmet@T520:~/linux-stable$ git describe
v3.2.21
ahmet@T520:~/BB/Ubuntu-RCN/stable-kernel$ git describe
3.2.21-x13

system.h is good, too.

BUT

ahmet@T520:~/BB/Ubuntu-RCN/stable-kernel$ ./build_kernel.sh
git version 1.7.9.5

any ideas please?

Your "KERNEL" repo is broken..

The question: was "/home/ahmet/linux-stable" broken before it was
copied to "/home/ahmet/BB/Ubuntu-RCN/stable-kernel/KERNEL"

I'd just "rm -rf KERNEL" and let it try to recopy...

Regards,

Thank you, Robert. Both the kernel repo and your stable-kernel patch set repo were cloned from scratch. After receiving this reply I cloned another kernel repo. The result was the same error message.

I commented out the “git_kernel” line in the build_kernel.sh in order to skip the fetch and pull part as a quick fix but then I got this error message:
Starting patch.sh
Distro Specific Patches
/usr/lib/git-core/git-am: 90: /usr/lib/git-core/git-am: envsubst: Argument list too long

Well, something is messed up on your system..

It works perfectly fine here:

Sorry, I don't have the time or resources to go down that road, once
you start "modifying" (build_kernel.sh, etc), you are on your own...
