You will need the 2.6.27 kernel.  I got a g20 on Friday and successfully 
booted it.  I used an oct 22 buildroot snapshot, and selected the 2.6.27 
kernel. I initially did the buildroot configuration for the 9260.    
After everything was completed I went back and did a kernel "make 
at91sam9g20ek_defconfig, and redid the top level "make".  From what I 
can see, there is no g20 support outside of the kernel (as of a few 
weeks ago).  

For my initial testing I grabbed pre build bootstrap & u-boot for the 
9g20 from linux4sam


I suspect the buildroot bootstrap & u-boot will work fine, but I have 
not tested them.
