kernel-yocto: clarify KMETA branch comments
Having a meta branch is not strictly required by the tools (and recipes like linux-yocto-custom do not have meta branches), but the comments in the kernel-yocto.bbclass could lead someone to think that it was required. This commit clearifies the comment to the following: # We can fix up the kernel repository even if it wasn't a bare clone. # If KMETA is defined, the branch must exist, but a machine branch # can be missing since it may be created later by the tools. [YOCTO #3422] Signed-off-by: Bruce Ashfield <bruce.ashfield@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <richard.purdie@linuxfoundation.org>
