I need to access source code of all past versions of read_write.c under /fs/ from 3.10 to 5.3.

So far I had to go through https://elixir.bootlin.com/ repeatedly and look at every single version that has read_write.c changes. I do not want to download the entire complete kernel collection 3.10 through 5.3. However I also want to see the differences even in minor versions. Is there anyway I can download the particular source code of a module for any given version (does not matter if I need to do it manually, I can always use diff and locate when the changes happened.) or see the version history of a module throughout all releases including minor versions.

  • "I do not want to download the entire complete kernel collection 3.10 through 5.3." ... so you are opposed to cloning the git repository? – muru Aug 12 at 16:27
  • I am opposed to downloading the entire kernel source code, I just need read_write.c. Can I do that through the git repo? – Yusuf Gürkan Bor Aug 12 at 16:30
