Compulab cm-x270 kernel update to 2.6.24

The kernel support in OpenEmbedded for the Compulab cm-x270 has been updated to version 2.6.24.  The 2.6.24 kernel opens up several possibilities including better real time and high resolution timer functionality, an improved SD Card driver, and a full SDIO stack with support for SDIO Wifi devices.  Also included is a patch to set the default framebuffer depth to 16 for several commonly used displays.  Xfbev really does not like when you give it a 8-bit framebuffer when it is expecting 16, and typically returns a very unhelpful error message like: “error: Invalid argument”.
