Particular subversion of kernel

Thu Mar 15, 2018 7:43 am

How can I download particular subversion of the kernel? For example:

Code: Select all

git clone --depth=1 -b rpi-4.9.y  
cd linux
head Makefile -n 3
give me 4.9.80 version.

I want to apply RT preempt patch and there are no patches for 4.9.80: ... 4.9/older/
as you can see there are patches for 4.9.76 and for 4.9.84.
Is possible to download for example 4.9.84 kernel sources for Raspberry Pi?

BTW. When I download the latest official image ... 018-03-14/
the kernel version is 4.9.80 but in file is line:

Code: Select all

Uname string: Linux version 4.14.24-v7+ (dc4@dc4-XPS13-9333) (gcc version 4.9.3 (crosstool-NG crosstool-ng-1.22.0-88-g8460611)) #1097 SMP Mon Mar 5 16:42:05 GMT 2018
Why there is the difference between the version in this file and kernel version in the image?
