The NSLU2-Linux project (who did all of the generation and pushing
upstream of the NSLU2 kernel patches behind the scenes, upon which
Martin, Joey & co. did the excellent integration into d-i and the Debian
kernel) is currently working on the Imega NAS100d, the D-Link DSM-G600,
and the Freecom FSG-3. And there is the GiantShoulder Inc. Loft board
which NSLU2-Linux supports too.
All of those should be straight-forward to integrate into Debian now.
We've also created NSLU2-specific patches for, integrated, and tested
the new IXP open source NPE driver (which Martin has recently included
in the latest Debian kernel unstable package upload).
[BTW: massive kudos to Martin, Joey & Co. - taking the NSLU2-Linux work
and integrating it into Debian has taken the number of downloads of
NSLU2 custom linux firmware images from 40,000 to 45,000 - a 12.5%
increase in just 9 months since Martin released the first d-i image!]
The future certainly is bright for consumer ARM devices running custom
