Beware. The omap2plus configuration produces a buggy kernel with the
potential to corrupt your data, especially when run on an SMP target.
A bunch of patches are required to fix this. Since this set of patches
is too large for -rc5, the final 2.6.38 will make the kernel non
bootable if SMP support is added to the mix. But if you stick only to
ARMv7 targets and don't configure in ARMv6 support then it will be fine.
