Sure, I didn't expect any newer kernel then 2.6.37. (As that was
customary for most vendors at that point in time).

Fair enough.

I was only hoping that someone could point to a release / src-rev in
meta-arago that should have been working. (It be nice to work using
something oe-core based).

Ok, then I guess that the best bet would be to look at the arago
project, prior to the move to oe-core / Yocto based arago...
