You know of patches? The only guy we know of whose remotely written any Extreme
(XZ) patches is one 'onion' over in the linux-mips IRC channel. Of course, I
don't believe he's ever released screen shots or source code, thus we've always
regarded his claims as vapourware. Did someone else create patches, or did he
finally put them out and not tell anyone?
If you have a location of the patches, I'd be interested in knowing where
they're at so I can see if they'll fit into mips-sources when I get around to
putting out 2.6.19 (yeah, It's wayyyyy behind). 2.6.20 still has problems on
Octane last I checked (-rc6), so I dunno when that'll be out.
But yeah, I've got an Extreme board set in an IP26 (R8000, w00t!) that I can
yank out and stuff in my IP28 to see if it boots the kernel and prints messages
(IP28's userland is all whacked up, so I doubt it'll ever boot again).
