ISTR that kernel.org might try to do an https transaction, and fail of
the relevant info is not passed from/via wget to it; you should be able
to see it if you log wget's run - '-o dwnld.log' or shell redirections.

And ISTR that there's roughly 6 or so cases of that.

And ISTR that a gordian-knot workaround is to download from lfs archive,
per book details.

Apols if am recalling incorrectly and if this is thus noise.
