No, not yet.  Also, something about how I copied the new kernel and 
modules onto one of my existing partitions has resulted in me no longer 
being able to boot the older kernel on that partition either 

On the other hand, I can still boot other partitions on the same SD 
card, so presumably the process of flashing the latest u-boot to NAND 
was successful.

To be clear, my setup is:
- P1: Replicant
- P2: QtMoko
- P3: My own userspace, with 3.7.0 and 3.16-rc2 kernels.
- P4: Extended
- P5: Shared media
and I can now boot P1 and P2 but not P3.

I haven't had time yet to investigate further.  Also I really need a 
serial cable setup - both for this and if I'm going to start playing 
with kernels that might not fully boot yet.  Possibly though my P3 
problem is nothing to do with flashing; it might be that I overfilled 
the partition when copying on the new kernel and modules, and something 
on the filesystem got lost or corrupted.
