[Gta04-owner] [hwvalidation] cpu at 100% on boot (multiboot)

Hi list,

I got the HW validation distro on p5 of my SD card, and use the distro-
switcher in QtMoko to boot it. 

Upon landing on the lxde-desktop, the CPU climbs to 100% within a few seconds 
after displaying the wallpaper and widgets ("clean install", so only the CPU 
monitor). I can see the CPU climbing, because the widget starts black and 
becomes green all over quite quickly. Perhaps the CPU is already close to 100% 
while starting the widget, and uses last bits of processing to update the 
rectangle to become all green over time.

I suspect there's a kernel mismatch, since I just extracted the tarball to 
this partition, using QtMoko's boot partition. One of the things not 
available, is USB (my laptops registers the phone on boot, but nothing after 
that)

How can I mix the two? I recall this being discussed before, but can't find 
the message anymore. Would it suffice to copy the right files to /boot of the 
HW validation distro?

Here's the partition table:

Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 8270 MB, 8270118912 bytes
4 heads, 16 sectors/track, 252384 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 64 * 512 = 32768 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

        Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

/dev/mmcblk0p7          215137      252384     1191936    b  W95 FAT32

p1 = boot
p2 = QtMoko
p3 = SHR
p5 = HW validation
p7 might be(come) QtMoko docs

the contents in p1 are from QtMoko:

root at neo:/media/hwval/boot# ls /media/p1/ -lah

There's nothing in /boot of the HW validation distro:
root at neo:/media/hwval/boot# ls -hal
total 8.0K
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4.0K Jun 19  2010 .
drwxr-xr-x 24  502  502 4.0K Oct  6 00:32 ..

Thanks in advance and best regards,
