This was my first shot, I'll have to fine tune the config and move many
drivers to modules, including this one. It works on my 840AV, however the
keyboards works only briefly, hwclock creates an oops, but the mac has been
running fine for a few days with that kernel. It still crashed in the end,
and I don't know yet why. I took a photo of the oops, in case somebody wants
to inverstigate.
