Prompted by this email thread, I persuaded my employer (Wasabi Systems) 
to contribute our port to the Certance CP-3100. It's now committed in 
evbarm/cp3100 complete with HPI work-around in arm/xscale/i80321_icu.c.

Enjoy. :)

Cheers, Steve

nslu2 status?

What parts of the nslu2 is supported in 3.1/4.0-to-be/current?
(actually - with only two devices, USB and Ethernet - it shouldn't
be a long list, right?)

Everything except Ethernet.

Oh... that would be the USB port, right? (Well, and the CPU itself).

USB works perfectly; it's basically ehci/ohci over PCI. See 
evbarm/nslu2/README for the low-down on what works and what doesn't.

General Porting Information

Hi,
I am very interested in modifying an existing ARM port to more fully support
the Freescale i.MX31 (ARM1136JF-S) and doing a completely new  port to
another CPU architecture that is currently not supported.  While the
directory structure and build environment seems to be straight forward, I
can't seem to locate any information that specifically details the directory
structure and build environment.

The only way to glean this information would seem to be reverse engineer
build.sh.  Does anyone have any insight into this?

Best Regards,

CLN

The first one's a bit outdated on the details, but it may help to get an
