Well I tried the precompiled 3.9.2 kernel on my compiler/test eSata Sheevaplug using the script but my system did not boot. It loaded the uImage but then failed to load. I am pretty sure that the problem is that I am using EXT4 on root (/dev/sda1) and by default, I see that EXT4 is not set up either as a module or builtin.
Therefore, I am starting to build a 3.9.2 kernel with Device Tree from scratch! Its edukayshun innit!
I'm not sure what you're looking at...but it's not the config I'm using, which has always had EXT4 built-in.
