For the upstream tree, the fix for the issue is present in
linux-linaro-3.0 and linux-linaro-3.1. Russell has accepted the fix
and is should be in v3.2-rc1. So CONFIG_ARCH_OMAP2=n should only
be needed temporarily, until the tree under test has been rebased.
Maybe that has happened already.
I don't know anything about an issue with TLB operations -- do you have
any more details on that?
