You're being very optimistic.
I'm not sure where you get the idea that it's "completely debugged".
It isn't - I've no real idea what the problem is, let alone what the
solution might be. I've only one guess based upon what is sane in
the kernel, and that isn't even based on the data provided in the
Linux kernel 2.6 ARM Linux - http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/
