OK, then what I really wanted to know was whether any of the ARM chips
that I did list (excepting the two x86 ones) would require ARM software
instead of armel.

I *think* most are either ARM9 or ARM11 - I'm just seeking confirmation
that all these would be OK with armel packages rather than needing ARM.

I get confused about the different ARM types and which map to armel.
