Kernel 3.19-rc3, ‘Lockup’ Bug, Latest..

Updated the test system to Kernel 3.19-rc3, and there is still no fix for VMware (11.0) and the latest NVIDIA (340.65 and 346.22) drivers…     The NVIDIA problem will involve getting around a GPL-incompatible module issue..

FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia.ko uses GPL-only symbol '__cachemode2pte_tbl'

3.19-rc3 installs and runs OK on the CuBox-i4 Pro:

$ uname -a
Linux rgcubox 3.19.0-rc3 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jan 6 10:11:36 EST 2015 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

ARM kernel source (patched) can be found here:   https://github.com/jmontleon/fedora-cubox-i_hb/tree/3.19-rc3
