Hei hei, I tried to use the current v4.13-rc1 kernel today, but apparently this does not work out of the box just setting PTXCONF_KERNEL_VERSION to 4.13-rc1. On https://www.kernel.org/ you can get a gz packed tarball from the URL https://git.kernel.org/torvalds/t/linux-4.13-rc1.tar.gz or if you go to the kernel.org cgit from https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/snapshot/linux-4.13-rc1.tar.gz but both are gz, not xz. Additionally looking at rules/kernel.make there seems to be some script magic to get a kernel tarball from some mirror, so I can not simply add one of those URLs to the make rule.
I will use a custom kernel tree like described in doc chapter 6.1 for now, but I would appreciate a simpler solution for using rc kernels just from a tarball. Any hints on that?
