Zaurus CF tests -- ok

After getting _good_ power supply, I was able to untar and rm ltp tree
100 times so far. 2.6.38, ext3. (So metan no, I do not see any weird
ext3 problems).

Another strange thing is... I see lots of duplicated keystrokes --
like type "pavel" but machine understands "paavel". But it only seems
to happen when I'm _not_ trying to debug it?!

So... just because something needs 5V does not mean you should charge
it from USB.

Yes, I'm talking about zaurus. I noticed that it crashed rather
quickly when connected to USB power. (For example in tar/rm test).
So I took multimeter, and there was 4.15..4.5V on USB :-(.

With power from USB extension cable, it crashes in <5 minutes. It
seems to toggle charger a lot, as voltage on the cable is only
4.2..4.5V. I guess it is software problem in the charging code.
