As Sean has mentioned recently, one known breakage that will result
from switching from 188.8.131.52 to 2.6.24 is that some sysfs names
change from *gta01* to *neo1973*. In particular, gta01-pm-gsm changes
from neo1973-pm-gsm, requiring a new /etc/default/gsmd (this changed
in the 2.6.24.x tree in revision 3649).
Now, I think this could be adequately addressed (in gsmd and elsewhere)
by simply testing at run time which of the two possible directories is
there, but perhaps there are more subtle dependencies in the rootfs
that are harder to to resolve.
The goal would be to make sure the next rootfs will work with 184.108.40.206
and 2.6.24, so in case someone needs to revert to 220.127.116.11 for some
reason, that can be done without nasty side-effects.
The changes are:
Please let me know if user space can be easily prepared for this
(maybe most of it is already ?), or if it will cause major upset.
