ARM Status

R/master: work continues on the arm multiplatform kernel – right now i’m
tracking down a “BUG: scheduling while atomic” (actually an alignment problem -
how conform
http://paste.ubuntu.com/1613275/) that only happens on omap4, seems to be ipv6
related and seems to be triggered by our articulated kernel configuration.
