All,

The layer has been updated and moved to git.yoctoproject.org under a central
mixin repo called "meta-lts-mixins", branch "dunfell/kernel":
http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-lts-mixins/

The naming is in accordance with the LTS mixin layer guidelines:
https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Stable_Release_and_LTS#LTS_.E2.80.9CMixin.E2.80.9D_repositories

Other mixin layers are also welcome!
Should the layer be called kernel-5.10 since there potentially may be other
versions?
Either that, or it can hold multiple versions...
I think that defeats the idea of specific purpose layers?
Not necessarily. Providing latest LTS kernels for Dunfell also seems very
specific. For every extra year of official support for Dunfell, this can
offer a new LTS kernel version, that can be selected by PREFERRED_VERSION.
Creating a new branch for each kernel version seems wasteful. But I can do
that as well, if needed.
