We had old arndale images working, but those were based on openSUSE-12.x which is now long obsolete and bad (e.g. missing security updates).

Thus we want to use a more modern u-boot and kernel, but those currently trigger a kernel panic. That needs to be investigated, tracked down and fixed but on the way we are hitting other problems, such as insufficient cross-compilation tools and a u-boot that can not do network/tftp boot.

Looking for hackers with the skills:

      (ontop of modules loaded in initrd) minimal reproducer is

      for m in exynosdrm i2cs3c2410 clks2mps11 s5m8767 xhciplathcd asix ; do echo $m ; /sbin/modprobe $m ; done

      still crashed with "xhci_hcd" blacklisted - but blacklisting exynosdrm helped
