I am using vfat for uImage and ext3 for rootfs. Currently, rootfs cant
be loaded because kernel panics on vfs drivers (or something) but the
kernel has started to boot when I renamed it to uImage.bin ;-)
I am going to repartition it to see if it will work. Should I go for a
smaller rootfs patition instead of 982MB? Maybe 500 or 512MB.
