The original message had these lines:
| About kernels
| vmlinux-2.6.32-5-4kc-malta : good
| vmlinux-3.0.0-1-4kc-malta : bad
| What do the kernel versions in between?
It is/was a slight hint to 'git bisect', where "good" and "bad" are used.
The difference between 2.6.32 and 3.0.0 are huge.
Find the last working (good) kernel and the first failing (bad) kernel.
