Right now, the only tree we have to test here is a 3.2.0-rc2, but I 
will try a 3.3-rc kernel soon (slow Internet connection and an even 
slower computer to cross-compile kernels inhibits us perform work 
quicker). In case there is interest, this is the output of where it 

I believe it might have something to do with the way of how MTD works, 
or doesn't in our case, with regard to 2.6.x kernels. It can't find a 
list of partitions.

Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.
