Hrm, how about:
The version of u-boot shipped from the factory on many
kirkwood(???) devices, as well as u-boot shipped in versions of
Debian prior to Wheezy, contain a bug (#658759) which renders
them unable to boot kernel versions 3.2(???) or newer. This
includes the kernel in Wheezy.
Users are advised to upgrade u-boot before upgrading their
kernel. XXX link to suitable documentation?
http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/uboot-upgrade.html and similar?
(??? fact needs checking).
