So you say that there might be hw problems with the uart on the soc? Or a driver

Cool, that must have slipped through our radar. Simon, is the threshold working
and if how can we use it?

Whops, since when you have this other config? Never seen it before.

We can for sure make a sync for the general configs we changed. What we will
always do is to mangle the config to build kernel for GTA01 and GTA01 from the
same config. Jan, as you made the kernel more modular can you have a look how we
can sync with the packaging config? Would this fit your schedule?

Well, this of course means we loking forward for more GTA01 support in .28,
battery driver comes to mind. :D
