Last night I installed linux-image-4.1.0-0.bpo.2-kirkwood (note: “bpo.2”, not “bpo.1” but should that make any difference?) on my SheevaPlug. I did not update flash-kernel or qcontrol. But it rebooted cleanly following the upgrade and it’s been running for 12 hours with no watchdog problems.
Was this fixed in bpo.2?
