documentation/dev-manual/dev-manual-kernel-appendix.xml: Added branch step
The example did not specify to switch to the "denzil" branch after establishing the local repo of poky-extras. The example will not work without this step. (From yocto-docs rev: 69b99a77f1f8247c217e77af89ecec3982adc264) Signed-off-by: Scott Rifenbark <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>

183 Because this example uses the Yocto Project &DISTRO; Release code
184 named "&DISTRO_NAME;", which maps to the <filename>&DISTRO_NAME;</filename>
185 branch in the repository, you need to be sure you are using that
186 branch for <filename>poky-extra</filename>.
187 The following commands create and checkout the local

189 branch:
190 <literallayout class='monospaced'>
191 $ git checkout -b &DISTRO_NAME; origin/&DISTRO_NAME;
