patches have been up (and used) from my website. just trying to get the time
to finish of 2.2.19, and sort problems with 7500 mouse support.

no, for a start there is no pc-style hard-disc, so I disable that from
working on the riscstation, the rtc is different, there is an ISA slot
and other miscellaneous bits. It is registered as an arch in it's own
I'll be working for Simtec as of november, so will have some real time to
dedicate to kernel work, like sorting a 2.4 release, etc. My current job
keeps leaving me little time to keep up-to-date with kernel releases, which
is why the riscstation hasn't managed mainstream arm status.
 this is the main stumbling block atm, and I have to make some time
to post a requrest for comments to the kernel list.
