Hmm yeah I don't know if the cpcap codec on the same mcbsp needs
mcbsp for voice call.

According to Sebastian sounds like mcbsp can be idle at that point.

But what about capture of voice call at the mcbsp from the
TDM slot? In that case mcbsp would be active.

Not sure if you mean password for the droid4-kexecboot or the
Linux distro you installed.. But for droid4-kexecboot, you
can configure it to automatically download new kernels over wlan.
There's some info on the machine specific password and how to
configure wlan in the droid4-kexecboot buildroot commits here:

Yeah you can update kernels and modules over wlan from the distro(s)
you have configured, and also from droid4-kexecboot as above.

And note that kexecboot looks for a boot/boot.cfg file to use on
every usable parition it finds and uses all the found entries
based on the priority configured for the boot.cfg entry.
