I'd like to expand on that a little. LTIB is a system builder, but you
can use it as part of your work-flow to edit/rebuild the kernel and try
out your changes, for example:
### unpack the kernel sources
$ ./ltib -p kernel -m prep
### edit, edit, edit rpm/BUILD/linux/*
### you can re-configure the kernel if you need to
$ ./ltib -p kernel -c
### build the kernel and install (and test)
$ ./ltib -p kernel
### more edit, edit, edit
### build/install/test again, etc
$ ./ltib -p kernel
### finished, capture changes
$ ./ltib -p kernel -m patchmerge
