Blast, yes, I forgot the module loader.

From a quick glance at the code, you want to apply
600_arm_module_loader_and_port_IO.diff. A lot of the elfloader.c hunks will fail but I think they are no longer required. You also need at least the xf86sym.c part of 600a.diff; again one hunk will fail and can be ignored.

Would someone like to try that out and see what happens? Adam, if you still have your build tree around it should be quite easy to apply those patches and rebuild just the affected parts.

I'm sorry, I'm pretty swamped for the next three weeks. If I get some time, I'll try it, but can't promise anything.

I did notice, however, that -4 seemed to autobuild!  Progress!
