I flashed this kernel and it recognizes my 8G SDHC card fine. However, now I
_seem_ to be getting random reboots. The question is that I noticed that
this bug (https://maemo.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=820) appears to be
fixed from the latest maemo update.

Does this custom kernel include the newest kernel code?
