 As ARM hardware is not widely available, the XO-1.75 is the primary
 platform for deployments building their own OS images with olpc-os-

 This isn't working for 12.1.0:

  1. imgcreate tmp things have moved from /var/tmp to /tmp, but the current
 instructions (http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OS_Builder/Run_on_XO_hardware)
 only make special considerations for /var/tmp. This results in loop errors
 when the filesystem is being created (reported by Reuben)
  2. We now rely on discard and partition support in loop devices, but
 these were implemented after kernel v3.0.
