Yeah, it's nice.
I'm playing with other EP9315 SBC, too. (a.k.a Armadillo-9)
http://armadillo.atmark-techno.com/armadillo-9
Unfortunately, it has only Japanese web pages.
But, this corporation published by some English PDF specification or so.

BTW, GAO Engineering provides like that SBC.
It's in "Enbedded Linux Boards" category in http://www.gaoengineering.com

And then, as you know,
"Unofficial Linux 2.6.x support for Cirrus EP93xx processors homepage" is.

It would be nice.
I had my EP9315 SBC runs with Gentoo.
But now, it has GNU glibc based userland.
I'll play to uClibc based Gentoo on it.
