course you can use the standard kenrel.org tree with the ELDK - like
any other Linux kernel tree as well.

The ELDK uses the DENX maintained Linux kernel tree, see
This has a couple of extensions, bug fixes and support for boards
that is not available in the kernel.org tree. We try hard to push our
additions upstream, but this takes time and resources, and in some
cases it doesn;t work at all (for example, because new board support
for the arch/ppc tree isn't accepted any more in the public kernel
So depending on which board you have, the kernel.org tree may or may
not work for you.
Also, referring to "latest version" - the DENX kernel tree is at
version 188.8.131.52 now. This is pretty current - I doubt you find many
vendors of embedded distros which provide more recent versions.
