okay,i'll give it a shot sounds fun will get to learn something. Cant

Maintaining a kernel isn't a one off event it's an ongoing process.
The vast majority of the work is getting the initial build working but
from there it's an ongoing process to keep it up to date to ensure
your users aren't vulnerable to CVEs etc.
