After trials with earlier versions, the Pi and Pi2 updated to Kernel 3.19.3 without too much effort..

I also discovered the source of the ‘sluggish’ performance of the Pi2 – I had accidentally put an older version of the boot binaries etc. in the /boot directory, which resulted in only 256MB of total memory!
