Well the current status for 3.11+ is that there's no output on the
serial console, it doesn't boot, or at least appear to boot with
anything on any console.
Well, that sucks.

Well at least for me on the ES I never had that working on the
3.7-3.10 releases that would vaguely sort of attempt to boot on my
devices. In theory the DT should possibly resolve those issues but as
we're not getting even to the point I had with 3.7-3.10 it's not under
consideration. From my PoV we need to get to the point where we're at
least getting console output.
I poke at it randomly but my time is limited and there's a lot newer
platforms that are also needing my time.
Okay, that's more-or-less completely useless to me. Without proper support
from TI engineers (and probably SVTronics too) I doubt I'd be able to do
anything useful towards getting it working. Maybe our stack of Pandaboards
are best used to prop doors open. I have probably got a few day to spend
poking, but I'd need some pointers because I've done very little kernel
I guess our best bet for our application will be to get Beaglebone Blacks
instead, but it's very disappointing because they really don't have
anything like as good a specification as the Pandaboards and there's a
pretty long lead time at the moment. :-(
