   [ Loïc Minier ]
   * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2.
   * Add a testsuite and run it during build; change code a bit to be more
     easily tested.
   * Start reworking flash-kernel to be more data-driven.
     - Keep some machine data in a small embedded RFC 2822 style database; such
       as allowed kernel flavors, machine id to set before booting Linux,
       MTD names, U-Boot load addresses, /boot filenames etc.
     - Simplify code in the main "case" statement as much as possible by using
       functions for common code and splitting error handling, initialization,
       and sanity checks out.
     - Various syntax tweaks.
   * Only allow iop32x kernels on GLAN Tank.
   * Fix Lintian warnings.
     - Quote minus signs in man page.
