Booted the Kernel built by Angstrom on LEON3

... but not the ramdisk. I seem to be having trouble with it at the moment. I shall investigate it properly tomorrow. Perhaps I haven't got enough RAM enabled, which can be a real problem apparently. Kernel hangs if you run out without error messages.

Just to be clear: I took the kernel from snapgear linux. I just created a single large patch against vanilla 2.6.21.1. The patch is quite large and I didn't want to care about such things.

However the version of glibc and the compiler are completely different. I don't yet know if this is going to cause stability problems, but I can just constrain Angstrom to use the right versions from the snapgear toolchain. Such is the power of OpenEmbedded.
