The Gentoo mips-sources package contains all the patches needed for
ip30.  We also have install media for these machines, although the
current netboot images have a bug with ethernet I believe, and I'm not
sure they have support for the vpro graphics in octane2.  I'm pretty
sure a new set of netboot installs and a new livecd should be available
pretty soon that should address all of these issues.
