I've been trying to collect this kind of information in RN:


Otavio, I'm sorry, I forgot to update the RN as you've asked. I'm
going to start this update right now.

The very best is kernel.org, but for some applications it may no be realistic.

The second place, in my point of view, would be
meta-fsl-arm/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-fslc-imx_4.1-1.0.x.bb because
you can send a pull request, and then only bump the recipe.

But, it's very individual answer.
