I tried pulling deltas (by specifying --template=...), that was
285MB. Maybe I screwed something up.

Anyway, now I have a tree, and yes it compiles. (After some
"interesting" questions; perhaps defconfig should be updated?)

Unfortunately, upon fastboot boot uImage, it hangs with black screen
and backlight on. I _think_ I got config right, most "interesting"
question was

AMSS modem firmware version
1. 6.2.10 (MSM_AMSS_VERSION_6210)
2. 6.2.20 (MSM_AMSS_VERSION_6220)
> 3. 6.2.20 + New ADSP (MSM_AMSS_VERSION_6225)
4. 6.3.50 (MSM_AMSS_VERSION_6350) (NEW)

...and I just selected "3" being default. No help available :-(. I
have cupcake installed, and I believe I installed radio update
required for cupcake. Can someone help? (And write Kconfig help text?
:-).

I know naming stuff is hard. But dream/g1/adp1 are both recognized by
outside people. I don't think "trout" has similar level of
recognition.
