I reduced the image size, so that it's way less than the
2.6.39 kernel size (old is 2.6.39. a is 3.0)
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5.6M Jul 24 12:16 /boot/linux.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6.3M Jul 23 20:50 /boot/linux.old
But that didn't help. :(
I'm currently trying to bisect it, but that turns out to be hard
due to various compile issues and stuff like that...
