Hi Richard,

I can't speak for the whole of Freescale as there's lots of groups, but
I can tell you the bit I know about.

For LTIB I merge out as often as I can, I'd prefer this to be more often
but it's not the only thing I do.  Fundamentally the Savannah CVS is the
same as the internal stuff but with a few less things in

So far as that is intended for
public access, I'll ask why it's not been updated lately.

For the 8xxx platforms the patches are continually fed upstream and so
I'd expect the kernel to include most, if not all of the
patches you mention below (and more).  Again your best bet is to ask on
the kernel mailing list.  My advice would be to grab the latest and and try arch/powerpc/configs/85xx/mpc8572_ds_defconfig
it you run into problems, the kernel mailing list should be able to

Regards, Stuart
