 errmoomoommoom... ah ha!


 but to be absolutely honest, the s3c64xx was an "interim" processor,
with specialised FIMD 3D graphics, only went as far as 800mhz: whilst
people who have it love it, it's not really a high priority: it's
kinda yesterday's processor already.  a minor speedbump in the road to
progress :)
