kern-tools: remove unused code, meta branch and directory assumptions
Updating the kern-tools SRCREV to pick up fixes that remove unused code, transition code (tree format changes) and to remove assumptions about branch and directory naming. There are no user visible changes with this update, but the plumbing changes will be used in future updates for more generalized support. The commit details are below: Author: Bruce Ashfield <> Date: Fri May 11 12:13:12 2012 -0400 kgit-publish: remove --remote option The ability to publish and automatically push a repository was never used, and is error prone. The complexit isn't needed in the script, so removing it is the best option. An explicit push after tree publication is suggested, or a wrapper script (specific to a particular infrastructure) around this script. (From OE-Core rev: 5b1a096211ebeb8dac4f1a39d96ae2f9a3d00634) Signed-off-by: Bruce Ashfield <> Author: Bruce Ashfield <> Date: Fri May 11 12:04:09 2012 -0400 kern-tools: remove unused code, scripts and transition code The period of supporting old trees with a different meta branch name and directory structure are gone. So the cleanup and removal of the old structure can be completed. The meta branch and directory are now controlled via command line, or via the KMETA environment variable. No testing and conditional processing of the tree are required. Additionally, the generate_cfg script is no longer used, or is the branch conditing code in createme. So they can be safely removed from the tools and repository.

With this set of changes, simply passing the meta branch name is enough to sanitize and restore the checkpoint. If no meta branch name is passed, the default of 'meta' is used for both the branch and meta data directory name.
