I see on LAKML there is buzz about old_params today:
[PATCH] arm: remove support for old way to pass kernel parameters
[PATCH] arm: deprecate support for old way to pass kernel parameters
Are we affected?
Is it now the moment to propose some zaurus-specific hacks in kernel
in order to be able to retrieve the mtdparts passed in the old way by
our old-fashioned bootloader?
And more, would it be possible to still pass the old_params in order
to boot 2.4 / atags-unaware kernels?
I think at the issue we have with kexecboot and 2.4 (cacko-sharp)
kernels: these rely on a predefined mtd partitioning, being that they
don't find any params at the expected (now deprecated) address.
