Have not yet fiddled with new 3.x.x kernels yet but experience forced me to be carefull wneb copying .config's across releases.
Using config on 2.6.38.x  was possible but using 2.6.38.x confin on 2.6.39.x would produce unexpected results. (38 and 39 ar just examples coz I've forgotten the names of each number)

Oggetto: [ARMedslack] Cant get -current 3.1.5 to boot
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
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
## Loading init Ramdisk from Legacy Image at 01100000 ...
   Image Name:   Slackware ARM Initial RAM disk f
   Image Type:   ARM Linux RAMDisk Image (gzip compressed)
   Data Size:    5811263 Bytes = 5.5 MiB
   Load Address: 00000000
   Entry Point:  00000000
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
   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 ;-)
