that's a good start ;)

no it's not, modulo some different tracking in .git under the hood.

that tutorial is not written by us ;) but it also does not at any point
say to copy separately cloned git repositories into sub directories of
the local clone of pve-kernel.git . the purpose of cloning the ubuntu
bionic mirror into a separate checkout is to have a clear separation for
working on your changes - you just need to put the final patch into your
copy of pve-kernel.git, not manually copy the whole modified kernel

I suggest we follow up in the forum thread instead of here on pve-devel.
