Kernel repo archive is based on kernel version instead of repo name
02 Mar 2014
01 - Critical
The KERNEL_VERSION is used to create the archive repo. Having built from RPi's git for 3.2.27, 3.10.y and 3.12.y I have the following archives:
linux-rpi-3.10.y linux-rpi-3.12.y linux-rpi-3.2.27
This wastes disk space and takes a long time to perform the initial repo archiving for each new branch I'm testing.
What I should have is one archive, called git, which matches the KSRC name. Then the repo just has a pull performed, followed by a checkout of the branch defined by KERNEL_VERSION.

- Status changed from In Progress to Closed
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
Fixed this. Switched kernel git archive repo to use KSRC name instead of creating a new archive for each branch.
