How to get full kernel source for 4.14.18

Thu Mar 21, 2019 4:10 am

I need this specific source (and .20) to test a problem that I see between them to try and determine what changed.

I tested the two kernels by using the binary installation script from the precompiled versions.

The problem, I cannot find any reference to what commit from the official repo those are built from.

When I tried to checkout "Linux 4.14.18" from "4.14.y" branch, while I compiled the whole things, all the overlays are missing. I saw reference that this is a non modified merged version.

How can I pull all the source so I can rebuild a new kernel for this particular version?

I discovered if I used rpi-source, I could both download the source AND get the commit it was built against.

Would still be nice if there was an easier way.
