documentation/dev-manual/dev-manual-kernel-appendix.xml: Added branch step
The example did not specify to switch to the "denzil" branch after establishing the local repo of poky-extras. The example will not work without this step. (From yocto-docs rev: 69b99a77f1f8247c217e77af89ecec3982adc264) Signed-off-by: Scott Rifenbark <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
