[MinnowBoard] Distro version vs peripherals support.

Hi John. I will try a 3.14+ kernel. By the way, I have an Intel DE3815TYBE
"NUC" board (Atom E3815). I don't want to hijack my own thread, but I have
not been able to use the onboard serial ports. As far as you know (maybe is
not your speciality field) could this be caused by the lack of support of
older kernels on bay trail?.

Thanks, and excuse me for the offtopic.
