I have been told that the kernel code was incomplete in earlier version too, .
They don't release it fully, but put a ready made one into the package.
The kernel this package is a bit different size than the one in those firmwares.

So, what files/paths are missing in case I bump into them in some packages/patches?
I am interested in optimization this platform,but without kernel source code i cant do anything.

bnmguy seem to have found/gotten some sources. I have seen similar branch in some packages for gs702C.

Tried to contact him a couple of months ago, but he has not answered.

A bit weird is this comment he has added there. Used, so doesn't use anymore? So, the problem is solved?

import leaked kernel from multiple GPL violator, Actions Semiconductor. This used prebuilt linked binaries, which the GPL liscense prohibits. This company is one of the worst I've seen for violations. It's a miracle they even released (sort of) this much, as my previous requests were denied (also a violation of GPL).
