LS1028ARDB no bootable Linux Kernel from git repo?

Hey,

I've been trying for over a week now to install an Ubuntu Distro on the LS1028ARDB via SD-Card. I am doing everything according to manual, but it appears that simply cloning the qoriq repo yields an unusable Kernel version, as it doesn't contain the drivers necessary to use the ethernet interfaces. Switching to LS1028a-early-access branch did help a bit, as in I managed to launch Ubuntu, but then the bridge interface can't be configured properly. So the question is: Is there a pre-built image to use with Ubuntu (which would be ideal)? Or can you at least tell me which Git branch is guaranteed to work NOW with the current Ubuntu userland etc.?

If you force your customers to build everything themselves, then please at least ensure that everything works not only on release of the manual (it appears the most recent one is from April), but also today.
