Bug#600430: linux-2.6: genorig.py does not handle 4-part tarball versions (e.g. 184.108.40.206)
Since several years back, kernel.org has provided linux tarballs
with both 3 part (e.g. 2.6.35) and 4 part (e.g. 220.127.116.11) version
numbers in their filenames.
But if genorig.py is run with a 4-part versioned tarball such as
linux-18.104.22.168.tar.bz2 it will barf about not recognizing the
Confusingly, the script source code supports a file naming with
an extra dashed revision, as convention NOT used by kernel.org,
even though the instructions clearly say users should use the
script only with the upstream tarballs.
Please fix this or change the instructions in README.source to
warn users that they MUST download a base tarball and a patch
(e.g. linux-2.6.35.tar.bz2 and patch-22.214.171.124.whatever) and pass
those to the script.
