It was not meant negatively. I am actually really impressed
by your achievements.

I make something with the code when i _feel_ i have some 5-10
free minutes :)

I have changed it to SUSPEND. This is the right way, IMHO, and 
there is supporting code. I have replaced F11 by SYSRQ, and it
is should be possible to powerdown the machine by SYSRQ o.
What for do you need F12 ??
while they are actually on the left ?
I am also not sure about KPDOT (Lose key) and GRAVE.
For me it is a major usability issue, together with having
PGUP, PGDN, HOME and END handled by loadkeys.
While we are at it, what console font should be used
to support all the signs found on the keyboard
(like ^2, ^3, and other weird glyphs that i can't even type here) ?

Not right now. We should get the parent sa1101 driver
infrastructure first: merge SA-1101.h into hardware/sa1101.h, etc.
Again, IMHO, you have put it as sa1100* device into Makefile,
while it is not exactly correct. sa1101 has most of the controls
and (should) handle interrupts, so it is a separate device.
The current sa11xx PCMCIA code was written for the devices
like HPAQ, and is very weird with its polling driver for handling
