Oh I wish there was news or an answer, believe me if there was I would
be screaming about it here and elsewhere.

omap4/panda in general is currently is a terrible state since 3.11 as
it was converted from a traditional board file to DT without any
change over period and the later IMO was poorly tested by those doing
it. Panda went from hero to zero in Fedora overnight.

I've got two different Panda ES boards. One is prototype and one is
the last rev and neither work, nor does the original Panda and ES that
pwhalen has. I keep poking at it randomly with test kernels of random
bits as time permits but I'm yet to get any working combination but I
have limited time. Rest assured if I get it working I'll be posting
the details of what kernel is needed here.

No, it's the correct spot to ask :-)
