Did you add any armv4t processors with mmu?  I believe the actual hardware I 
tested was an ARM920T.  Vincent's patch claims to add arm920T, I tested yours 
because you claimed it was "more complete".

I guess I should go test vincent's.

"Included in other patches"...  How _many_ other patches?  And how far is 

If you'd like to resubmit them as a batch, I can try coming up with a kernel 
.config.  (And a uClibc .config since I haven't actually tried a nommu system
