Kernel 4.12.0-rc1

    Note that the boot.cfg included in the tar ball is an example only.
    You will need to adjust your root= accordingly.

    This is an experimental release. Please raise any issues in this thread or on #ALARMZ on freenode

Change Log

    Set USB power level to 180mA (not sure this actually works)

    Reverted PCMCIA regulator additions by moving soc_common.c/h to 4.6.7 version

    SPI PXA2xx driver was reverted to 4.6.7 version

    IPV6, ALSA and some file-systems are modules again instead of compiled into the kernel

    F2FS was added (You need  kexecboot with F2FS support)

    SECCOMP enabled as required by systemd

    Online charging may work again. This needs some testing.
    Re-plug the power cord after a boot brings the charging LED on

Thanks for your work. The F2FS support is especially interesting, it's for sure a better choice than ext4 for our SD cards.
