I did *not* copy it to /versions/boot/current/boot, since it never 
completed the
boot from the USB stick.

I copied your modified ramdisk to /boot on the USB disk, renamed it to
olpcrd-2.6.25-deepak-fix.img and changed the olpcrd.img sym link to
point to it.

The USB boot still does not succed, but we are a bit further.
Now it is complaining about a missing libusual.ko:
WARNING: Could not open 
No such file or directory
I get fewer warnings about missing symbols in usb-storage (now only four):
storage_usb_ids, usb_usual_clear_presetn, usb_usual_check_type and 
But the end result is still the same: cannot mount /dev/sda1 on /sysroot.

Could you make (yet) an other fixed ram disk which I can try?

Other question, should this be entered in trac, and is it blocking for 
8.2.0 ?
