In my previous email, I mentioned I've built the kernel successfully. Did you
get my email?

We got 5+ more patches now.

And I still wanna discuss with you guys about the next update of our ti-omap4
tree. I was told TI will release 2.6.35 based omap4 kernel for us in the middle
of August. So we will replace the whole ti-omap4 branch shortly, since our
Maverick kernel target is 2.6.35. How about we skip this 2.6.34 release and just
wait for next one?
