i edited the om-gta02-feed.conf file to point to and the did
an update/upgrade.  this got me a new kernel, to wit:

Upgrading kernel on root from
2.6.24+r10.1+gitrf5b973489beb1a1239dfad53e3ad6e36ff7ee958-r10.1 to

and also a number of kernel modules and other stuff.

i then rebooted the unit and ran my tests again.  with this kernel, i
no longer get the wsod on screen blank but i still get it when i
suspend/resume.  also, letting the unit blank/unblank after a wsod no
longer clears up the wsod.

something is not entirely kosher though as my usb networking went
away.  there may be other brokenness as well.
