Regarding the exynos kernel srpm, i am working on that as time permits.
Still not sure how to handle the install of the kernel from the rpm. I guess for now let the user manually sign & pack with vboot-utils. The location of the chromium boot partition is unpredictable. Maybe setup a file in /etc/sysconfig/ with parameters.
Vboot-utils should be accepted soon once my sponsor reviews the package BZ.
Agree with ain't broke don't fix. :-P

There have been a number of corrections and improvements in the git repo kernel, but the earlier comment was kind of the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." It takes a little while to set things up and build the kernel and install it. Daryl, if you need help to set it up I can help you.

I wished that we had a srpm setup for the chromebook git kernel, then could point people at the koji build. However, need to have the uboot built for chromebook also need vboot-utils.
