What is the git command line path/parameter for for-next or for-2.6.37?
Something equivalent to...

Why do the files in git/broonie/sound-2.6.git look older than -next?
For example, it's missing soc-cache.c, and the codec drivers there
use the old I/O method.  Same drivers in -next are newer and use the soc-cache.
