Status of (debian) linux on Sun Fire 480R

Dear all,

because I want to summarize anyway and was just asked via personal email:

vanilla kernel 2.6.32 compiled with gcc 4.3.2 (lenny) is booting and running
on a SunFire 480R.
Console on the rsc (not garbled anymore thanks to removal of the broken
prom console stuff) works, the machine shows 4 serial ports now.
A pci sungem gigabit fiber card is also running.

Big thanks to davem for fixing this and getting all into the mainstream.
Hopefully debian kernel people will pick up a 2.6.32 kernel to
unstable and testing in the near future.

Not working is the cassini driver for the buildin copper gigabit ethernets,
loading the module hangs the machine when the network is configured up
after a short time, then an ERROR: System Hardware FATAL RESET from  CPU0

As usual I offer to provide anything which would be helpful to debug this.
