Oh. Thanks for noticing it!
I applied 1 and it still doesn't boot. The current status is that a
lot of things are built for s3c2410. By reading a reply from Ben I
think he suggested that someday in the future we might build for 2442b
As you implicitly suggest the next step is to check what patches we
need to make things work and check where they are in the submission
(I didn't read 3 carefully now, I'll check this issue later).
