Feel free to remove it. We don't run Linux on our EBSA devices, so i
would not even know if you broke it!

OK. Minor change. Please can you do this?

I could say the same of -u diffs. I find context diffs much easier to

What involved in getting such a thing up and running. How much of the
software was public domain? Even if we cannot get the whole system
going, just being able to build the images would be a big step
forward. I guess have a complete test farm in one place is not likely,
but maybe we could have a number of smaller test farms at contributers
premises who have spare boards laying around.
