Okay, good news and bad. The install kernel for hpcsh can successfully get
an IPv4 address via dhcpcd. However, the newer install kernels for the
JORNADA720 on hpcarm crashes. The kernel from 2012/08/13 boots, but dhcpcd
doesn't work (as expected). The kernels from 2012/08/18 & 2012/08/20 both
crash right after "WARNING: CHECK AND RESET THE DATE! with:
Fatal kernel mode data abort: 'Alignment Fault 3'
trapframe: 0xc30a9f60

Stopped in pid 1.1 (init) at     c009b268:       ldr      r1, [r1, #01x160]

The information above is the same for both install kernels. If necessary,
I can send the above info to a serial terminal so I can provide all the
detail without the effort (and errors) in re-typing.
