-| Network is detected from only one NIC card when two NIC cards are connected on the platform |
-| AMD SPI Kernel Driver fails to access the SPI ROM registers |

+|:----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
+| The Qogir board for Vermeer does not have an RS232/UART serial port/header. |
+| _** Workaround: Use an LPC to UART Adapter module for serial communication_ |
+| The serial communication from a host machine with Vermeer using an LPC to UART Adapter module may not work properly with some hosts because the module lacks Hardware Flow Control signals such as CTS and RTS. |
+| _** Workaround: Connect the RTS & CTS pins on the host side with each other in order to achieve a No Handshake based serial communication_ |
+| Install option in the GRUB menu does not work by default using the serial interface and only works on the graphical console. |
+| _** Workaround: Disable the graphical console by setting `MACHINE_FEATURES_remove = “screen-console”` in the `local.conf` and rebuild an image_ |
