Howdy folks,

I know the u-boot code was updated to support the right voltages and
timings for the v3 Panda.
I believe we got all the right bits in u-boot version 2013.10 that we
ship, but there is always 2014.1 right around the corner.
I've also heard rumors of what will become kernel 3.13 working, but
that is always omap2+ def configs, probably not the multi-platform.
In Fedora we need MP kernel or nothing, but perhaps a remix could be
generated and omap2defconfig kernel kept off in a side repo?
Some really big question marks here.

Nishanth, care to confirm or deny the rumors?
