Please if you have any link that would help me understand how backports work I would appreciate. I am trying to install backport drivers and modules to my system to replace the original ones trying to install mac80211 to be precise .

I am trying to work on something with rate control (Minstrel_ht in particular) I need to have a similar setup to where I can edit minstrel source code then download and compile to Linux kernel from time to time for testing. How do you think I can get the similar file structure on git hub
