[asac, Jul 11, 2011]: maybe add an Acceptance: criteria line below Headline: that states how to validate the output of the blueprint.

Headline: Linaro's upstream tree has been upgraded to 2.6.39

Acceptance: LEB Panda with .39 kernel build from android-build.linaro.org compiles and runs

See build 1 of:
https://android-build.linaro.org/builds/~linaro-android/beagle-11.07-release/
https://android-build.linaro.org/builds/~linaro-android/panda-11.07-release/
...for a release with kernel 39.

Notes:
[2011/9/28, pfefferz]
The task "Debug why the HDMI port doesn't work on Beagleboard xM rev C but works on A3" is done. Later versions of beagle running with a newer u-boot didn't exhibit this problem. https://android-build.linaro.org/builds/~linaro-android/beagle-11.09-release/#build=4 doesn't exhibit the issue.
