Exciting to hear!  Can you elaborate on what changes you needed to make with
respect to the Ubuntu kernel source?  My understanding is that cubox-i and
hummingboard are supported in the mainline kernel and should work with the
3.18 kernel in vivid, but may require additional dtbs besides the ones we
currently ship.

Of course, since these boards read u-boot from the SD card, there will be at
least some device-specific handling required for Snappy.
