Some more Snappy Gumstix (and Panda and Beagleboard)

Hi Loïc,

I'm able to boot from both partitions by manually changing snappy_ab.
I expected to be able to test either with a 'snappy upgrade
ubuntu-core' (exits upgrades currently available?) or a
'snappy rollback ubuntu-core' (both partitions are initialized to the
same version-->"More than one ubuntu-core with version 2"?).

I haven't seen any uImage vz zImage issues (perhaps this is the issue
on beagle though?).  I did use the latest release of u-boot (15.04) as
the RAW_INITRD wasn't working for me on 14.10.
