Hi All,


   While checkout Kernel_linux code in Android N7.1.1_1.0.0 Platform. I am getting following message,


root@cpu494:/work/myandroid/kernel_imx# git checkout n7.1.1_1.0.0-ga
Checking out files: 100% (50194/50194), done.
Note: checking out 'n7.1.1_1.0.0-ga'.


You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.


If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:


  git checkout -b new_branch_name


HEAD is now at 72e0d95... MA-9237 selinux: nlmsgtab: add SOCK_DESTROY to the netlink mapping tables.




And also using this kernel I am not able to cross compile driver binaries?....

We are suspecting that due to this above message it giving error?


Please help me on this to get proper kernel_linux fix code.
