Q4D06 will be unable to boot kernels that don't support a non-flattened
device-tree.  Kernel support has been there for a little while now*, so
your existing kernel _may_ support it.  I can't say for sure without
knowing which kernel you're running.

* Added on Feb 3rd w/ commit 4e23d0d5 ["olpc: convert device-tree code
to support both prom DT and flat DT"]
