Some things look like the are already fixed. Who maintains the page?
Who decides what the buildd should be building? Is there a state for
it somewhere like buildd.debian.org has? Oh never mind, those are linked
to from debian-ports.org.

Oh yes, that is always fun (having done that for a uclinux system). :)

I looked upstream, and 3.0 looks broken for i.MX53, but 3.1 should be OK,
so once it is released I was thinking of trying to get a kernel going.
Freescale's ubuntu kernel has 767 patches on top of 22.214.171.124 which to
me is just insane. A lot of that appears to have gone upstream to
Linus's tree by now, so I figure it is worth seeing what is missing from
3.1 once released to see what else needs pushing upstream.
Would be nice to have a debian built kernel eventually after all, which
means it has to go upstream first.
