I can't give you a list, but I've been using SHR (first testing, now unstable)
from a 4 gig SD card (using qi as the bootloader) for quite some time now.
I also use gps a lot, and did not have any problems with that.
Before that, I used various incarnations of the 2008.X line in the same fashion,
also without problems getting a gps fix since the software fix was released.
