Bug Description

Binary package hint: flash-kernel

Dist-upgrading a Linaro install on a Panda, the kernel is not written to the boot partition:

update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-1001-linaro-omap
Kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-1001-linaro-omap does not match your subarchitecture omap4, therefore not writing it to flash.

$ uname -a
Linux linaro 2.6.38-1001-linaro-omap #2-Ubuntu SMP Mon Mar 21 21:40:07 UTC 2011 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
$

flash-kernel's subarchitecture check is buggy wrt Linaro kernel naming.

i'm not a shell expert, but with this patch i can flash a linaro-omap kernel on a vanilla omap4's ubuntu kernel and the other way around.
