Re-compile kernel parts
Hi. I wondered if I can recompile just some little parts of a kernel after I built and installed form source, which takes a lot of time.
For example, suppose I want to modify some little lines of code inside networking code, (e.g. net/core/dev.c), how can I re-compile and run the "hacked" kernel in order for the modifications I need to be active?
I know about the development of modules, but don't know if it can be usefull about hacking networking stuff, if I can unload a particular module or something, and re-load after my modifications.
Thanks a lot

Welcome to the forums!
I no longer build my own kernels, but back when I did so, this guide proved to be extremely helpful:
It should cover the various shortcuts that you might want to use for your kernel builds.oz
