hi all,
hi Neko,

what's about your Genesi's OF patch ??
http://www.powerdeveloper.org/platforms ... devicetree

it seems with that DTS we can now remove patches like this one:
http://www.ewb.it/~acrux/linux-2.6.22.9-Pegasos2.patch

is it right?

greetz,
Acrux

Well you can remove the top part of the patch but not the bottom part - Olaf Hering at SuSE posted a much updated version of it, though, that particular lump of code looks more like mine..

The IDE quirk (chrp_pci_fixup_vt8231_ata in chrp/pci.c) is essential to get Linux working under libata, but patching the interrupt tree is (in prom_init.c) not (the script does it).

Basically, there is an included patch in the DTS archive - if any patch adds anything more than that patch removes, you must roll a new patch to keep it in. It's intended as the very very last patch you apply (I should have named it 999- instead of 000- in that regard, I'm considering this a bug :)

Next versions will have a full RTC node implementation for all you clock-bug people to replace the old script, and possibly some other cute stuff.

Is there anything you'd want to see?
