Ok, from what I've read so far.....
It doesn't boot from USB
Is there a way to do USB boot at all? This might be a problem for me as I keep my OS storage on a 1TB HDD...
If you put the kernel and Init on the SD card with the correct settings you can make it use the USB drive.

Re: Kernel .config

Something that would be handy for a lot of us is the basic .config you have been using for the pi. Or even better a "raspberrypi_defconfig" in the "/linux/arch/arm/configs/" in your kernel git repo.

You will probably have to access the ntp server fairly often. The software clocks tend to have a lot of drift.

Could have saved himself a lot of trouble by just plugging the sd card into another system and deleting the password. I probably would have done that before sending an email because it\'s much faster.

Re: Endian

<t>ARM chips are kind of "endian odd". Most of the are what's called "Bi-Endian", and yes this includes the arm-11's. What that means is they support both big-endian, and little-endian modes. In most cases modern ARM chips default to little-endian. So if specifically want/need a specific endianness ...
