The append-GTA02 file should is append to the end of the kernel parameter so 
no vertical whitespace should be used.

In a recent Qi /proc/cmdline for a kernel on the first partion of uSD is:

loglevel=4 console=tty0 console=ttySAC2,115200 init=/sbin/init ro \
0x00040000(identity-ext2),0x0f6a0000(rootfs) \
g_ether.host_addr=00:1F:11:01:1F:C2 g_ether.dev_addr=00:1F:11:01:1F:C2 \
root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootdelay=1

If the freeruner is booted holding the powerbutton Qi boots with loglevel=8

this warning series only  mean that the kernel has g_ether as a module

In fact Qi ignores fat partitions

I don't think that build system makes the symbolic link from /boot/uImage 
to /boot/uImage-GTA02.bin and I don't know what OE recipe is responsible for 
that change.
