Honestly I don't know which focus was planned for smartphone-kernel. If it is
about problems with the specific kernel port and FSO I think the list of the
active kernel work would be better. If it is about more generic questions of
APIs that would effect more then one device or even more then one arch it should
be discussed on lkml or linux-embedded. Anyway, that is my personal opinion and
I'm drifting away from your question.

Correct. Exactly as we announced we moved GTA02 to the andy-tracking, with a
fixed and tested sane rev, to get all new feature and improvements that will not
get backported to the .24 kernel. For GTA01 we miss some more fixes and a lot
more testing to do the same step. It is also planned.

That is a decision that you guys have to make. :)
For GTA02 I can say that we are happy with this version so far. Battery
improvement is nice and some other things are, too. I don't know the policies
you have for debian when changing kernels so I can't decide this for you. A fact
is that the kernel team more or less stopped the work on .24 so we have to move
on sooner or later.
