I downloaded the latest raspian image (2015-05-05) from raspberrypi.org,
and after dd'ing it to the SD-Card, it boots on both devices. I did an
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade before installing the new (self-build)
kernel, as recommended in the tutorial.

Output of uname -a is

Linux raspberrypi 4.1.6+ #1 PREEMPT Tue Aug 18 15:43:23 CEST 2015 armv6l

which says armv6l at the end, so I'm guessing I built a kernel for armv6
and replaced the original raspian kernel with it.

Another run of apt-get update / upgrade tells me there are no new
packages to install.
