The answer is the same as the last time you asked this question: you're 
looking in the wrong place. Those are merely some of the patches we use 
for that one arch.

The build system pulls patches from several places to assemble a patch 
series which is unique to each supported target. You're trying to 
recreate the patch series by hand which isn't the way it was intended to 
be used. The build system automates everything you are trying to 
recreate by hand.

If you use the build system properly you can recreate the x86_64 patches 
(without having to build anything) for mainline as follows:

     $ cd targets/x86_64
     $ make kernel-quilt-link-patches

The targets/x86_64/patches will now contain a proper series file, and 
links to all the relevant patches.

The config options we use for a particular target is in its target 
directory. For instance:


I am sure the list would love to hear your results for testing specific 
kernel versions and config options.
