You are right, i posted it to the "Advanced User" Forum. I just posted a reply 
with the solution to make users of search engines happy. I will try to select 
the right forum next time i have a question.

Eric's hint was enough (device_tree=bcm2709-rpi-2-b.dtb in config.txt). As i 
am using with ptxdist a complete cross building environment the building of 
the kernel is a little different ("ptxdist images" or more specifically 
"ptxdist targetinstall kernel"). But the hint for mkknlimg is interesting 
nevertheless as i have not known about it.

Still i would like to know what the base repository for the patches on this 
list is.

Best regards
