I just don't understand how to work with the linux-yocto kernel.

For example, I created a local copy of the yocto kernel, and updated the recipe to point to the local copy
(git:///<path>;protocol=file, etc)

Then I created a local branch meta, and another local branch
standard/qemuarma9 and then updated the machine definitions in the meta
branch for qemuarma9.

When I run yocto, and bitbake linux-yocto, in the tmp folder, if I check
the git branch, it's checked out *_standard/common-pc/atom-pc._*
There were some old bugs which caused the wrong board description to
be picked up, the seems similar.

But without seeing your exact changes, as they sit in the tree, I
can't be sure.

Did you also update the meta and machine branch SRCREVs ?

This is really weird.

I've wasted a couple of days because the yocto build infrastructure was
checkout out the wrong branch.
Start with the yocto-bsp tool, it's probably the easiest way to define a
new BSP in recipe space, and then move it to the kernel later.
