My Rootfs had problems due to this new SD card. The kernel was giving
panics due to some VFS driver issue but when I used the old SD card it
started to work. Is there a problem of quality of SD cards that I
bought? We are making images on various SD cards as incremental
experiments so need to have more than one card. I'll check it somehow.
