don't loose time writing, just help testing ;)

We discuss about linux-kexecboot mini-kernels because if those boot properly
with the well-known initramfs image then we can hope the 'production' kernel
will be similarly stable.

We are obliged to dump the old kernels because after the merge OE/Yocto only
kernels after 2.6.32 are supported.
Older always lacked something to properly work with udev or did not
implement core features like devtmpfs, lzma/xz, ...

The best we (zaurus developers/survivors) can do is having a working linux
3.x kernels able to boot the rootfs produced with the new oe-core

I don't have freetime to do more than that and lacking the necessary kernel
knowledge to write patches by myself I can just test and report.
