Updated the CuBox-i4Pro to Kernel 4.2 (from kernel.org) and everything went smoothly – eventually..
I had tried using the kernel config saved from 4.1, but after booting successfully, the network suddenly stopped working after a few minutes of traffic, even though eth0 etc. was still present.. I was planning to revert to 4.1.6, but then tried creating a fresh config using # make imx_v6_v7_defconfig, and recompiling, and everything seems to be OK now..
