Hi guyz,

I am working on a P series processor (P5040) from freescale that came with the yocto BSP framework. I need to take the kernel-source (from ~/QorIQ-SDK-V2.0-20160527-yocto/build_p5040ds-64b/tmp/work-shared/p5040ds-64b/kernel-source ) on one PC and copy to other PC and compile.

For compilation I am using 

bitbake -c compile -f virtual/kernel

When I run this command I see that the kernel at the above mentioned location (that I had just copied) get deleted and a fresh version is fetched (probably using do_unpack) and compiled.

The QorIQ-SDK-2.0-IC-Rev0.pdf doesn't help. Its telling me the same thing I am doing. 

How do I get around this?
