I upgraded from 3.1.2 to the 3.1.5 packages yesterday. Before attempting to 
compile the guruplug UAP drivers I tried to boot and had no luck.  Hung at:

-- ## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 00800000 ...
    Image Name:   Linux-3.1.5-kirkwood
    Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)
    Data Size:    2090424 Bytes = 2 MiB
    Load Address: 00008000
    Entry Point:  00008000

## Loading init Ramdisk from Legacy Image at 01100000 ...
    Image Name:   Slackware ARM Initial RAM disk f

    Load Address: 00000000
    Entry Point:  00000000

    Loading Kernel Image ... OK

Starting kernel ...

Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.

I compiled up the modules and my own uImage with the .config that comes with the 
armedslack kernel source and the same thing happens.

I set it back to 3.1.2 and it boots fine.

Oh yeah - Happy New Year ;-)
