           Summary: Automatic ipkg kernel upgrade needs stricter sanity
           Product: OpenMoko
           Version: 2007.2
          Platform: Neo1973
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: kernel
        AssignedTo: willie_chen at openmoko.com
        ReportedBy: cwixon at usa.net
                CC: buglog at lists.openmoko.org

Last night, I did a bleeding-edge update and build, then did the usual ipkg
update && ipkg upgrade dance.

A new version of the kernel was built (svnr3810), and I ended up with an .ipk
but for some reason I *didn't* get a corresponding kernel image file.

During the ipkg upgrade, the automatic ipkg kernel flasher erased the existing
kernel partition before discovering it didn't have anything to flash, so I ended
up with an empty kernel partition and the device would not boot.

This was easy enough to fix (this time) with a manual kernel flash using
dfu-util, but it probably shouldn't have erased the partition without first
checking (and perhaps even MD5-ing) the image it intends to flash.
