Maybe you should ask on linux-m68k for guidance, so your patch can be
included someday (DCF-77 on the joystickport? That sounds interesting!).

Hmm, you're the second atari user saying that...

I don't have an atari, remote debugging is a little bit difficult, when it
comes to kernel issues.

Ok, please report again on the linux-m68k list, maybe the kernel hackers
know something.

Fine then. I declare this image working on atari, the X thing is not worse
than with 2.2.10, right?

Well, if your X does not work, xconfig will neither? I prefer menuconfig
anyway, the real(tm) experts use make config only...

Thanks for testing,
