Compiling sources from repositories

I work with ucLinux and Blackfin about 1 year.

But many things I still didn't understand.

Earlier I always compiled from μClinux Distribution Releases.

μClinux Distribution Releas has injected Linux kernel.

It was pretty easy to download compatible toolchain also from releases.

To get uImage (kernel + rootfs) and burn it into NAND flash. It works fine.

But now I downloaded from Git repo remotes/origin/2010R1 branch.

I was confused that repo has not injected kernel.

How to know which commit I have to download from Linux kernel repo?

And which toolchain I have to use?

I suggest that I can use newest toolchain for old linux version.

Can I use 2011 Toolchain for releases 2010R1 linux?

I don't want to separate kernel and file system.

Can I download linux kernel and put it into uclinux-dist/linux-2.6.x for combined compilation.

Where I can read all my questions?
