Richard/Saul,

Here's the completion of a long standing 'nit of ours
where the kernel version isn't all that obvious from
the name of the linux-yocto recipes. As we finally 
cycle a kernel version out the bottom (2.6.34) the
issue came to a head (did you mean the old -stable
or the new -stable? .. etc).

So here are the recipe renames to fix things. I'll
quote the patch here:

[
   linux-yocto: rename recipes to explicitly indicate version
    
    The existing recipe names for the linux-yocto kernel builds
    worked well when there was a single, or two versions of the
    kernel available. But with the impending kernel updates and
    retirement of older kernels, the re-use of the same recipes
    for different kernel versions violates the principle of least
    surprise.
    
    To address this, the recipes are being renamed as follows:
    
        linux-yocto_git.bb -> linux-yocto_2.6.37.bb
        linux-yocto-stable_git.bb -> linux-yocto_2.6.34.bb
    
    There continue to be versionless recipe names that feed into
    versioned recipes at the appropriate points. They are:
    
         linux-yocto-dev.bb (tracking the latest yocto dev kernel)
         linux-yocto-korg_head.bb (tracking korg kernels)
    
    There are no existing users of linux-yocto-stable in the master
    branches to convert to the new naming, so these changes work
    in isolation.

I'm sending follow up patches to any other users that I know
of, but I can't say that I know of any and everyone with a 
bbappends that will no longer match.

So I'll leave it up to you for how you want to go about the
transition, but let me know, so I can get the known users
synchronized when this goes into master.

If you'd rather not jave the renames, I can simply add the new recipes
and we can remove the old ones at some more distant point in
the future when we know it to be safe. The more I think about it,
this may be the best option to keep things from breaking, but I'll
wait to hear before resending with that as the change.

Cheers,

Bruce
