[maemo-developers] CONFIG_LOCALVERSION causing non-boot was Re: N800 is USB Host mode (Compiling kernel with CONFIG_USB_MUSB_HOST)

I figured out the issue. It was totally unrelated to the USB patching.

I was changing CONFIG_LOCALVERSION compile variable to be able to 
identify which kernel (of the several that I have tried) is loaded  by 
using uname -a. Apparently doing this is a no no because the device goes 
into an endless loop of rebooting. Keeping it a "" fixes the issue.
