Setting KERNEL_TESTING_PATCHVER enables the option in menuconfig to
build with testing kernel. If set to the same version as
KERNEL_PATCHVER, this is misleading as despite suggesting the use of a
newer/testing version, obviously the exact same kernel version will be

You are right in that keeping it became the pattern once
KERNEL_PATCHVER was bumped to the same level as
KERNEL_TESTING_PATCHVER. I assume this was not deliberate (please
