How to use git to get kernel 2.6.38.8

Last year i was able to get the kernel 2.6.38.8 like this:



# git clone git://git.eu.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.38.y.git



But now, i get a fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly



Instead of using git://git.eu.kernel.org... i tried git://git.kernel.org without success. I think i need to use git due to patches i have to apply.



The precise kernel version i formerly downloaded (what git describe told me) was: v2.6.38.8-3-g89a7f99. i know the patches i applied did work on it.
