    10 First, on your build system you will need to install the packages
    11 linux-source-3.2, kernel-package, and c-compiler-mipsel-linux-gnu.  Second,
    12 unpack the kernel source (/usr/src/linux-3.2.tar.bz2) into a build directory of
    13 your choice.  Then apply these patches in the order: linux-patch-openwrt,
    14 linux-patch-yaffs2, linux-patch-ocf, linux-patch-brcm47xx, and finally
    15 linux-patch-brcm4716 (people on non-4716 devices can skip the last step).  The
    16 suggested patch application method is to use the script
    17 `/usr/src/linux-patch-<piece>/scripts/apply <dir>` included with each patch.
    18 The process can be done manually by first unpacking the files-3.2.tar.xz
    19 followed by applying the patch files inside patches-3.2 in order.

    21 Initial testing suggests the linux-patch-yaffs2 and linux-patch-ocf can be
    22 skipped, but they're included for consistency with OpenWRT.  Given an

    3533Major issues at the moment:
    36 
    37         - I need to explore Debian-helper so these turn into /actual/ packages,
    38         rather than just a collection of kernel patches.
    3934
    4035        - I'm usure of how to "properly" handle kernel patch packages at this
     
    4641        files from OpenWRT.
    4742
    48 Minor issues at the moment:
    4943
    50         - The OpenWRT patches really should be broken up.  During the first
    51         pass at developing these patches, it turned out to be easy to split the
    52         files/patches for the Open Cryptographic Framework into a separate
    53         group.  I suspect there are quite a few other groups of patches that
    54         can be split off.  I'm unsure whether including the OCF patch is a
    55         benefit to DebWRT or not (looks like a no-op, but I do not know /where/
    56         in OpenWRT it was used).

    58         - There will need to be support for the 3.10 or possibly a later kernel
    59         in the future.
