OK, thanks. I will move to 4.1 then for the moment.

Yes, I know. I have been trying to port the 2.6.12 kernel to a more 
recent kernel, but I have not been successful in this. The board I am 
using is a Armadillo 9 and the supplier only provides a 2.6.12 kernel. 
They are working on a more recent kernel however.

Kind regards,
