Hi Andy,

Thanks for a feedback -- I just want to mention again that those are 
pure qtopia images -- both kernel and rootfs and without any consecutive 
opkg upgrades, so I guess there should be no way I could add any 
modules, unless they are in the shipped qtopia image, thus should be 
addressed by Trolltech people I guess ;-)

I don't think I saw similar messages on OM2007.2 (there was some garbage 
on text console whenever I was powering that image down last time, but 
it went too fast for me to comprehend what was on the screen ;-))
