OK. This is probably academic then: in testing my code on the 950 lately I 
found that IOP ADB isn't reliable. That is, sometimes it boots with a dead 
keyboard. I knew that passing the kernel argument "adb_sync" used to hang 
the adb probe on this box so there's probably a race condition 
somewhere... I've added it to my list.
