Oh, interesting, GPL violations. Have you contacted GitHub too?
Nah, because they clearly showed that they weren't interested in solving anything. Proof is that they don't even do a quick check of the affected repositories.
EDIT: In case you still don't believe me...
https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:5JpYrD57Kp0J:https://github.com/jawad6233/MT6795.kernel/blob/master/alps/kernel-3.10/build.sh+&cd=3&ct=clnk

I've found a cache of the "infringing" repository. It has the exact same structure of that live repo :
https://github.com/Xmister/MediaTek-HelioX10-Kernel

Which is, again, a copy of the Linux kernel.
