Looks quite nice. But that's a plan for after our 2.6 port is stable.

You betcha. I'll just kluge the j820/init.S a bit more...
At first, I moved the initrd, as suggested by bootp/init.S;
then, I decided that was a wast of precious tens of milliseconds,
and now, I put the initrd *before* the zImage rather than after,
so that the zImage can have plenty of bss wherever it is,
now that it uses -fpic.

Matan: see Documentation/arm/Interrupts
I added
before the request_irq(), and it works quite right.
Yippers! I've been typing commands in a 2.6 kernel!
I'll commit that, even though it should eventually be replaced
with a serio thingie that exports a serio for the mouse.

You're already helping tremendously...

So you think you know how to translate French into English? Now what if the
French meant something completely different than what the English understood,
only neither the French, nor the English, could figure out the difference?
