I have questions with this, should everybody be doing this procedure to
all updates from a release prior to 23 to a release 24 or later that
would install Q7B11 or later?

ie: image 13.1.0-21 is installed then you flash/olpc-update to 13.1.0-26
should you be doing this? Does this apply to all B1,C1,C2 models and
what versions should be installed with Q7B11 for these models?

from a machine with Q7B11:

kernel: zforce: found zForce firmware
kernel: zforce: running in multitouch mode

What should syslog be recording for the zforce driver for the B1,C1,C2?

Just trying to clear up what needs to be done going forward.
