The kernel ones were to append the MACHINE_KERNEL_PR that was set with the letter.  The SRCPV use was also nice to make it easier to know which commitid was being used during the kernel build.

I get your point on clarity so I'm OK with a version specific addition.  You may have answered this before but what is the difference between your libdrm and the libdrm upstream?  Are your patches going upstream to the main libdrm so that going forward you can drop this recipe for a new version?

Denys, refresh my memory if we are doing a version but we are also changing things in our trees don't we normally do this as something like ti-libdrm and set the PROVIDES, etc for libdrm?  This was to distinguish between libdrv 2.4.41 for example and what TI is calling 2.4.41 right?  Or do you just want to do 2.4.41+?  What is your preferrence? 

Sidd, going the non _git route see my other input then about PR, etc.
