Hi all....
I have git clone 
So, I get an repo for linux  kernel source code .
What I  want to do is to search for a function changes from version A
to version B.
for instance, I want to get change log for function
"kmem_cache_create"  in file  mm/slab.c  from kernel 2.6.18  to

What I should issue an command?
I have tried
           git  log --grep='kmem_cache_create' mm/slab.c
but this will get many commits and every commit is specified with an
sha1,  not kernel version  which  i wanted.

I am not  a native english speaker ,i have tried my best to explain my
question ,but  maybe there  is still some fault or unclear

any reply will be appreciated, thks.
