Currect debian-installer compile in an armel crosschain and works great,
but with a tweak. need to change the machid.
Ethernet module of current linux kirkwood, when using a machid of
SheevaPlugs or GuruPlugs, take the network link at 10 Mb.

I already send a bug report about this.
Here what the tests give :

May be it need to be add to the u-boot and linux.
Do not know the process steps to check add for current hardware.

Sheevaplugs, with a machid 690 give good results in stock firmware
(fedora) and in Debian.
