Nice one. I actually fired a private email to a 'Nigel Spon' at ADI
regarding that bsp: no reply that time though...

Sounds like your prototype could be a good starting point: the boot code
may be a little different (TLBs etc) but the intc and uart are probably
identical (according to amcc, most peripherals are reused across the
range, as you'd expect).

I'd like to work contribute to this work - network drivers are high on
our priority list too btw ;) Failing that, I'll get started anyways, and
we can compare notes later :P
